%N Pseudoprimes to base 6.

%C Theorem: If both numbers q and 2q-1 are primes and n=q*(2q-1) then 6^(n-1) == 1 (mod n) (n is in the sequence) iff q is of the form 12k+1. 2701, 18721, 49141, 104653, 226801, 665281, ... are such terms. This sequence is a subsequence of A122783. - _Farideh Firoozbakht_, Sep 12 2006

%C Composite numbers k such that 6^(k-1) == 1 (mod k). - _Michel Lagneau_, Feb 18 2012
