Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Contains Fermat numbers A000215 (p=2) and Mersenne numbers A001348 (N=1). The terms of the sequence are either primes A000040 or overpseudoprimes A141232.

The values of A019320(n) for prime power n, sorted. This sequence is a subsequence of A064896, which means that all terms are sturdy numbers (A125121). It appears that the largest prime factor of each of these numbers is a sturdy prime (A143027). - T. D. Noe, Jul 21 2008
