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.

COMMENTS

All powers are squares with the exception of 3^3 for a(2) and 6^9 for a(6). I conjecture these are the only nonsquare powers.

FORMULA

{n: A053767(n) in A001597}. -  Zak Seidov, Jul 06 2013

EXAMPLE

Considering 1 not to be prime and not to be composite, first composite is 4 which is 2^2. And the sum of the first four composites is 4 + 6 + 8 + 9 = 27 = 3^3.

MAPLE

# see A001597 for isA001597

for n from 1 do

    if isA001597(A053767(n) ) then

        print(n) ;

    end if;

end do: # R. J. Mathar, Jul 08 2013
