COMMENTS

According to Karsten Meyer, 4 should be excluded, following the strict definition in Crandall and Pomerance.  May 16 2006
Theorem: If both numbers q and (2q  1) are primes (q is in the sequence A005382) then n = q*(2q  1) is a pseudoprime to base 5 (n is in the sequence) if and only if q is of the form 10k + 1. 1891, 88831, 146611, 218791, 721801, ... are such terms. This sequence is a subsequence of A122782.  Farideh Firoozbakht, Sep 14 2006
Composite numbers n such that 5^(n1) == 1 (mod n).
