%e For n=8, 3^n+1=6562=2*17*193 has two prime factors of form, namely 17=2n+1, 193=24n+1. Thus a(8)=2.

%t m = 3; n = 2; nmax = 130;

%t While[n <= nmax, {l = FactorInteger[m^n + 1]; s = 0;

%t For[i = 1, i <= Length[l],

%t i++, {p = l[[i, 1]];

%t If[IntegerQ[(p - 1)/n] == True, s = s + l[[i, 2]]];}];

%t a[n] = s;} n++;];

%t Table[a[n], {n, 2, nmax}]

%t Table[{p, e}=Transpose[FactorInteger[3^n+1]]; Sum[If[Mod[p[[i]], n] == 1, e[[i]], 0], {i, Length[p]}], {n, 2, 50}]
