This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation. Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing. Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS For primes p of the form 4n+3, in the order of A002145, let us seek solutions for prime p|(a^x + b^y) or p|(a^y + b^x) subject to the conditions p = a+b = x+y and 0 < a,b,x,y < p. The larger of the two exponents x and y is inserted into the sequence. If either of (a,b) is a primitive root of p, there is a unique solution, either p|(a^x + b^y) or p|(a^y + b^x). If neither is a primitive root (see A060749), there are multiple solutions and p|(a^x + b^y) or p|(a^y + b^x) will always be one of them for some of the given exponents (x,y) contributing to the sequence. LINKS G. C. Greubel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000 EXAMPLE For p=43=A002145(7), (x,y)=(11,32) because 43-(43+1)/4=32; hence x=43-32.  With (a,b)=(12,31) the unique solution is 43|(12^11 + 31^32) because 12 is a primitive root of 43. The larger of 11 and 32 is a(7)=32 in the sequence. For 43 multiple solutions occur when neither of the pairs (a,b) is a primitive root of 43: p divides each of 11^4 + 32^39, 11^18 + 32^25, 11^32 + 32^11; note that the exponents (11,32) occur in the last entry.
