COMMENTS

a(17)-a(18) are from Brinkmann's and McKay's paper. - Vladeta Jovovic, Jun 10 2007

From Altug Alkan, Dec 18 2015: (Start)

a(p^k) == k+1 mod p for all primes p. If k=1, a(p^1) == 1+1 mod p, that is, a(p) == 2 mod p. So next term of sequence a(19) satisfies a(19) == 2 mod 19.

a(p+n) == A265042(n) mod p for all primes p. If n=2 and p=17, a(17+2) == A265042(2) mod 17, that is a(19) == 51 mod 17. So a(19) is divisible by 17.

In conclusion, a(19) is a number of the form 323*n - 17.
