COMMENTS

Babbage proved the congruence holds if n > 2 is prime.

See A088164 and A263882 for references, links, and additional comments.

Conjecture: n is a term if and only if n = A088164(i)^2 for some i >= 1 (cf. McIntosh, 1995, p. 385). - Felix Fröhlich, Jan 27 2016

The "if" part of the conjecture is true: see the McIntosh reference. - Jonathan Sondow, Jan 28 2016

The above conjecture implies that this sequence and A228562 are disjoint. - Felix Fröhlich, Jan 27 2016

Composites c such that A281302(c) > 1. - Felix Fröhlich, Feb 21 2018

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 16843^2 and a(2) = 2124679^2 are squares of Wolstenholme primes A088164.
