COMMENTS

For e > 3, unlike the cases e=1,2,3, the numbers binomial(2n, n) - 2 mod n^e are not necessarily 0 for any n>1, be it prime or composite (see A246130 for introductory comments). Testing up to n=278000, the only number n>1 for which a(n)=0 is the first Wolstenholme prime 16843 (A088164), but no composite.
