%N Binomial(2n, n) - 2 mod n^3.

%C When e=3, the numbers binomial(2n, n) - 2 mod n^e are 0 whenever n is a prime greater than 3 (Wolstenholme's theorem; see A246130 for introductory comments). No composite number n for which a(n)=0 was found up to n=431500 (conjecture: there are none, and a(n)=0 for n>3 is a deterministic primality test).

%F For any prime p>3, a(p)=0.

%e a(7)= (binomial(14,7)-2) mod 7^3 = (3432-2) mod 343 = 10*343 mod 343 = 0.
