COMMENTS

First conjecture: a(n) > prime(n) for all n > 6. Robert Israel tested the author's conjecture up to prime(95) = 499. The prime factorizations of the numbers 2^(p-1)-1 for larger p can be checked in available tables, see A005420.

Second conjecture: a(n) = gpf(2^prime(n) - 2) for almost all n, in the sense that the set of exceptions {10, 16, 37, 40, ...} has zero natural density.

Primes p for which p - 1 does not divide gpf(2^p - 2) - 1 are 29, 53, 157, 173, ...

EXAMPLE

For prime(5) = 11, 2^11-2 = 2*3*11*31 and 11-1 | 31-1, so a(5) = 31.
