COMMENTS

The value 0 at index 0 says 0 has no primitive roots, but the 0 at index 1 says 1 has a primitive root of 0, the only real 0 in the sequence. - Initial terms corrected by Harry J. Smith, Jan 27 2005

a(n) is nonzero if and only if n is 2, 4, or of the form p^k, or 2*p^k where p is an odd prime and k>0. - Tom Edgar, Jun 02 2014
