COMMENTS

Comments from Alexander Adamchuk, Jul 02 2006: (Start)

Every a(n) is divisible by prime 2, a(n)/2 = A079309(n).

a(n) is divisible by prime 3 only for n=12,30,36,84,90,108,120,... A083096.

a(p) is divisible by p^2 for primes p=5,11,17,23,29,41,47,... Primes of form 6n-1. A007528.

a(p-1) is divisible by p^2 for primes p=7,13,19,31,37,43,... Primes of form 6n+1. A002476.

Every a(n) from a((p-1)/2) to a(p-1) is divisible by prime p for p=7,13,19,31,37,43,... Primes of form 6n+1. A002476.

Every a(n) from a((p^2-1)/2) to a(p^2-1) is divisible by prime p>3.

a(p^2-1), a(p^2-2) and a(p^2-3) are divisible by p^2 for prime p>3.

a(p^2-4) is divisible by p^2 for prime p>5.

a(p^2-5) is divisible by p^2 for prime p>7.

a(p^2-6) is divisible by p^2 for prime p>7.

a(p^2-7) is divisible by p^2 for prime p>11.

a(p^2-8) is divisible by p^2 for prime p>13.

a(p^3) is divisible by p^2 for prime 2 and prime p=5,11,... Primes of form 6n-1. A007528.

a(p^3-1) is divisible by p^2 for prime p=7,13,... Primes of form 6n+1. A002476.

a(p^4-1) is divisible by p^2 for prime p>3. (End)

Mod[ a(3^k), 9 ] = 1 for integer k>0. Smallest number k such that 2^n divides a(k) is k(n) = {1,2,2,11,11,46,46,707,707,707,...}. Smallest number k such that 3^n divides a(k) is k(n) = (12,822,2466,...}. a(2(p-1)/3) is divisible by p^2 for prime p = {7,13,19,31,37,43,61,...} = A002476 Primes of form 6n+1. Every a(n) from a(p^2-(p+1)/2) to a(p^2-1) is divisible by p^2 for prime p>3. Every a(n) from a((4p+3)(p-1)/6) to a((2p+3)(p-1)/3) is divisible by p^2 for prime p = {7,13,19,31,37,43,61,...} = A002476 Primes of form 6n+1. - Alexander Adamchuk, Jan 04 2007
