COMMENTS

This sequence is the same as A050217 for the first 60 terms and starts to differ at the 61st.

Conjecture: For any biggest prime factor of a Poulet number p1 with two prime factors, there exists a series with infinitely many Poulet numbers p2 formed this way: p2 mod (p1 - d) = d, where d is the biggest prime factor of p1. Note: it can be seen that the Poulet numbers divisible by 73 bigger than 2701 (7957, 10585, 15841, 31609, etc.) can be written as 1314*n + 73 as well as 2628*m + 73.

Conjecture: Any Poulet number p2 divisible by d can be written as (p1 - d)*n + d, where n is a positive integer, if there exists a smaller Poulet number p1 with two prime factors divisible by d.

Note: This conjecture can't be extrapolated for Poulet numbers p1 with more than two prime factors; for instance, if p1 = 561 = 3*11*17, there indeed are bigger Poulet numbers divisible by 17 (such as 1105 and 4369) that can be written as 544*n + 17, but there also exist such numbers that can't be written this way, e.g., 2465. But the first conjecture can be extrapolated.

Conjecture: For any biggest prime factor of a Poulet number p1 exists a series with infinitely many Poulet numbers p2 formed this way: p2 mod (p1 - d) = d, where d is the biggest prime factor of p1.

For each prime p, there are only a finite number of q such that p*q is here. See A085014. Sequence A180471 lists the factors of terms of this sequence. - T. D. Noe, Sep 20 2012

Numbers n = p*q such that n divides 2^(p-1)-1 and 2^(q-1)-1, where p,q are primes; thus 2^gcd(p-1,q-1) == 1 (mod n). - Thomas Ordowski, Aug 27 2016

EXAMPLE

Few examples for the first 4 Poulet numbers with two prime factors:

For p1 = 341 = 11*31, the following Poulet numbers p2 for which p2 mod 310 = 31 were obtained: 2821, 4371, 4681, 10261 etc.

For p1 = 1387 = 19*73, the following Poulet numbers p2 for which p2 mod 1314 = 73 were obtained: 2701, 7957, 10585, 15841 etc.

For p1 = 2047 = 23*89, the following Poulet numbers p2 for which p2 mod 1958 = 89 were obtained: 31417, 35333, 60787, 62745 etc.

For p1 = 2701 = 37*73, the following Poulet numbers p2 for which p2 mod 2628 = 73 were obtained: 7957, 10585, 15841 etc.
