 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS p divides a(p-1) for prime p > 5. p divides a((p-1)/2) for prime p > 5. p^2 divides a((p-1)/2) for prime p = 31, 37. - Alexander Adamchuk, Jul 07 2006 p^2 divides a(p-1) for prime p = 37. - Alexander Adamchuk, Nov 07 2006 Denominators are A007480. See the W. Lang link under A103345 for the rationals and more. The limit of the rationals Zeta(n) := Sum_{k=1..n} 1/k^4 as n -> infinity is (Pi^4)/90, which is approximately 1.082323234. See A013662.
