COMMENTS

2nd prime p such that p^2 divides prime(n)^(p-1) - 1.

2nd prime p such that p divides the Fermat quotient q_p(p_n) = ((p_n)^(p-1) - 1)/p, where p_n = prime(n).

a(5) is unknown: 71 is the only known prime p that divides q_p(11).

If a(5) is found, the sequence continues a(6) = 863, a(7) = 3, a(8) = 7, a(9) = 2481757.
