COMMENTS

It is an open problem to find all numbers n such that (n+1)(n-1) is a divisor of 3^n + 5^n.

Such n together with n^2 must belong to this sequence (an example is given by n=3). Furthermore, it is not known if the intersection of this sequence and A234536 equals {3}. - Max Alekseyev, May 19 2015
