COMMENTS

The length of row n is A006093(n).
From J. H. Conway, Sep 06 2003: (Start)
"Let's ask for the exact power of some prime p that divides a^K  1. Then the assertion is that if k is the smallest positive number for which p itself divides a^k  1 and a^k  1 is exactly divisible by p^i, then a^K  1 will be divisible by p precisely when K is a multiple of k and then the exact power of p that divides it will be p^(i+j), where p^j is the exact power of p that divides K/k.
"In other words, the first time you get a multiple of p you can "accidentally" get a higher power than the first, but from then on you can only get more p's by putting them into the exponent.
"Examples: the first time 3^K  1 is divisible by 11 is at 3^5  1, which is divisible precisely by 11^2. So 3^K  1 will be divisible by 11^(2+j) only when KI is divisible by 5 times 11^j.
"Similarly, 2^1092  1 happens to be divisible by just 1093^2, so 2^(1092.1093^j)  1 will be divisible by just 1093^(2+j)."

T(n,k) is the multiplicative order of k (mod prime(n)). Note that each row has many numbers that are the same. These numbers are counted in A174842. [T. D. Noe, Apr 01 2010]
