 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS From Alexander Adamchuk, Aug 07 2006: (Start) The only two prime terms are a(2) = 2 and a(4) = 37. The prime p divides a(p-1) iff p is in A045468. The prime p divides a((p-1)/2) iff p is in A047650. 3^4 divides a(p) iff p is in A003628. 3^5 divides a(p) for p = {37,53,109,181,197,269,397,431,541,...}. 3^6 divides a(p) for p = {109,541,...}. 3^7 divides a(p) for p = {557,...}.
