COMMENTS

Values of n for which half the witnesses in the Fermat primality test are false.
When n=pq with p,q=2p1 prime, a^(n1) = 1 (mod p) iff a is a quadratic residue mod q. So A129521 is a subsequence.  Gareth McCaughan, Jun 05 2011
From Robert G. Wilson v, Aug 13 2011: (Start)
Number of terms less than 10^n: 2, 4, 5, 7, 22, 60, 129, 303, 690, 1785, …, .
In reference to the numbers in the bfile: (1) number of terms which have k>0 prime factors: 1, 1058, 139, 512, 339, 102, 6; (2) about half of the terms, 1058, are members of A129521, those which have just two prime factors; (3) except for the first term, all terms are squarefree, except for the first two terms, all terms are odd; and (4) most terms, more than 98.5%, are congruent to 1 modulo 6. (End)

While exploring Carmichael numbers, I noticed a few values on the chart on this page for which exactly half of the relatively prime witnesses to the Fermat primality test were false witnesses.


FORMULA

Integers, n, such that A063994(n) = 2*A000010(n).  Robert G. Wilson v, Aug 13 2011
