COMMENTS

A generalization of Wolstenholme primes (A088164) for composite number.

Leudesdorf proved in 1888 that the numerator of Sum_{k=1..n, gcd(k,n)=1} 1/k is divisible by n^2 for all (but not only) numbers n with gcd(n,6)=1, which is a generalization of Wolstenholme's theorem.

Terms that are coprime to 6: 1, 155, 793, 3965, 5219, 16843, 16891, 51305, ...

a(41) = A088164(1) = 16843.

A general conjecture: if, for some e > 0, m^e | Numerator(Sum_{k=1..m, gcd(k,m)=1} 1/k), then m^(e-1) | Numerator(Sum_{k=1..m, gcd(k,m)=1} 1/k^2). Note: in this case, the exponent e = 3. Problem: are there numbers m > 1 such that m^4 | Numerator(Sum_{k=1..m, gcd(k,m)=1} 1/k)? - Thomas Ordowski, Aug 10 2019

This general conjecture was checked up to 10^4. This problem has no solution up to 10^5. - Amiram Eldar, Aug 10 2019

It appears that all odd terms of this sequence are odd numbers m such that the numerator of Sum_{k=1..m, gcd(k,m)=1} 1/k^2 is divisible by m^2. - Thomas Ordowski, Aug 12 2019

EXAMPLE

Sum_{k=1..39, gcd(k,39)=1} 1/k = 46855131783993/15222026943200, and 46855131783993 = 39^3 * 789884047, thus 39 is in the sequence.
