Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

First column of A027446. - Eric Desbiaux, Mar 29 2013

From Amiram Eldar and Thomas Ordowski, Aug 07 2019: (Start)

By Wolstenholme's theorem, if p > 3 is a prime, then p^2 | a(p-1).

Conjecture: for n > 3, if n^2 | a(n-1), then n is a prime.

Note that if n = p^2 with prime p > 3, then n | a(n-1).

It seems that composite numbers n such that n | a(n-1) are only the squares n = p^2 of primes p > 3.

Primes p such that p^3 | a(p-1) are the Wolstenholme primes A088164.

The n-th triangular number n(n+1)/2 | a(n) for n = 1, 2, 6, 4422, ... (End)
