COMMENTS
These are also the numbers that cannot be written as i*j + i + j (i,j >= 1). - Rainer Rosenthal, Jun 24 2001; Henry Bottomley, Jul 06 2002
The values of k for which Sum_{j=0..n} ((-1)^j*binomial(k, j)*binomial(k-1-j, n-j)/(j+1) produces an integer for all n such that n < k. Setting k=10 yields [0, 1, 4, 11, 19, 23, 19, 11, 4, 1, 0] for n = [ -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9], so 10 is in the sequence. Setting k=3 yields [0, 1, 1/2, 1/2] for n = [ -1, 0, 1, 2], so 3 is not in the sequence. - Dug Eichelberger (dug(AT)mit.edu), May 14 2001
n such that x^n + x^(n-1) + x^(n-2) + ... + x + 1 is irreducible. - Robert G. Wilson v, Jun 22 2002
Records for Euler totient function phi.
Together with 0, n such that (n+1) divides (n!+1). - Benoit Cloitre, Aug 20 2002; corrected by Charles R Greathouse IV, Apr 20 2010
n such that phi(n^2) = phi(n^2 + n). - Jon Perry, Feb 19 2004
Numbers having only the trivial perfect partition consisting of a(n) 1's. - Lekraj Beedassy, Jul 23 2006
Numbers n such that the sequence {binomial coefficient C(k,n), k >= n } contains exactly one prime. - Artur Jasinski, Dec 02 2007
Record values of A143201: a(n) = A143201(A001747(n+1)) for n > 1. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Aug 12 2008
From Reinhard Zumkeller, Jul 10 2009: (Start)
The first N terms can be generated by the following sieving process:
start with {1, 2, 3, 4, ..., N - 1, N};
for i := 1 until SQRT(N) do
(if (i is not striked out) then
(for j := 2 * i + 1 step i + 1 until N do
(strike j from the list)));
remaining numbers = {a(n): a(n) <= N}. (End)
a(n) = partial sums of A075526(n-1) = Sum_{1..n} A075526(n-1) = Sum_{1..n} (A008578(n+1) - A008578(n)) = Sum_{1..n} (A158611(n+2) - A158611(n+1)) for n >= 1. - Jaroslav Krizek, Aug 04 2009
A171400(a(n)) = 1 for n <> 2: subsequence of A171401, except for a(2) = 2. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Dec 08 2009
Numerator of (1 - 1/prime(n)). - Juri-Stepan Gerasimov, Jun 05 2010
Numbers n such that A002322(n+1) = n. This statement is stronger than repeating the property of the entries in A002322, because it also says in reciprocity that this sequence here contains no numbers beyond the Carmichael numbers with that property. - Michel Lagneau, Dec 12 2010
a(n) = A192134(A095874(A000040(n))); subsequence of A192133. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Jun 26 2011
prime(a(n)) + prime(k) < prime(a(k) + k) for at least one k <= a(n): A212210(a(n),k) < 0. - Reinhard Zumkeller, May 05 2012
Except for the first term, numbers n such that the sum of first n natural numbers does not divide the product of first n natural numbers; that is, n*(n + 1)/2 does not divide n!. - Jayanta Basu, Apr 24 2013
BigOmega(a(n)) equals BigOmega(a(n)*(a(n) + 1)/2), where BigOmega = A001222. Rationale: BigOmega of the product on the right hand side factorizes as BigOmega(a/2) + Bigomega(a+1) = BigOmega(a/2) + 1 because a/2 and a + 1 are coprime, because BigOmega is additive, and because a + 1 is prime. Furthermore Bigomega(a/2) = Bigomega(a) - 1 because essentially all 'a' are even. - Irina Gerasimova, Jun 06 2013
Record values of A060681. - Omar E. Pol, Oct 26 2013
Deficiency of n-th prime. - Omar E. Pol, Jan 30 2014
Conjecture: All the sums Sum_{k=s..t} 1/a(k) with 1 <= s <= t are pairwise distinct. In general, for any integers d >= -1 and m > 0, if Sum_{k=i..j} 1/(prime(k)+d)^m = Sum_{k=s..t} 1/(prime(k)+d)^m with 0 < i <= j and 0 < s <= t then we must have (i,j) = (s,t), unless d = m = 1 and {(i,j),(s,t)} = {(4,4),(8,10)} or {(4,7),(5,10)}. (Note that 1/(prime(8)+1)+1/(prime(9)+1)+1/(prime(10)+1) = 1/(prime(4)+1) and Sum_{k=5..10} 1/(prime(k)+1) = 1/(prime(4)+1) + Sum_{k=5..7} 1/(prime(k)+1).) - Zhi-Wei Sun, Sep 09 2015
Numbers n such that (prime(i)^n + n) is divisible by (n+1), for all i >= 1, except when prime(i) = n+1. - Richard R. Forberg, Aug 11 2016
a(n) is the period of Fubini numbers (A000670) over the n-th prime. - Federico Provvedi, Nov 28 2020

Cf. A000040, A034694. Different from A075728.
Complement of A072668 (composite numbers minus 1), A072670(a(n))=0.
Essentially the same as A039915.
Cf. A101301 (partial sums), A005867 (partial products).
