COMMENTS

These numbers are the worst cases for the RabinMiller probableprime test.
Alford, Granville, & Pomerance show that this sequence is infinite.
The sequence is unchanged whether one, both, or neither of 1 and n1 are included as bases.

EXAMPLE

25 is a 1, 7, 18 and 24strong pseudoprime and no odd number less than 25 has four or more bases to which it is a strong pseudoprime.


PROG

(PARI) star(n)={n; n>>valuation(n, 2)};
bases(n)=my(f=factor(n)[, 1], nu=valuation(f[1]1, 2), nn = star(n)); for(i=2, #f, nu = min(nu, valuation(f[i]  1, 2)); ); (1 + (2^(#f * nu)  1) / (2^#f  1)) * prod(i=1, #f, gcd(nn, star(f[i])));
r=0; forstep(n=9, 1e8, 2, if(isprime(n), next); t=bases(n); if(t>r, r=t; print1(n", ")))
