COMMENTS

Michael Somos (Feb 01 2004) discovered the remarkable fact that A001067 is different from A046968, even though they agree for the first 573 terms.

Numbers n such that A001067 is different from A046968, or alternatively, those n such that gcd(A001067(n),2n-1) is > 1.

If gcd(A000367(n), A000367(n+2)) <>1 then n = A090495(n) - (3*A090496(n) + 1)/2. - Mohammed Bouayoun (bouyao(AT)wanadoo.fr), Feb 08 2004

So far, all terms correspond to irregular primes. Notice that these numbers are generated by n=((2k+1)p+1)/2 where p is an irregular prime and k is some integer = 1,2,... . In the Excel spreadsheet provided at the link, you will notice that much larger firstborn irregular primes p tend to produce smaller values of k. E.g., p = 691, 683, 653, k = 5, 15, 23. So by some guessing we could test a given large irregular prime for the first few values of k. I found ip's 257, 293, 311 this way, but not the index. Also the spreadsheet shows the corresponding irregular primes where the Bacher forecast fails for firstborn irregular prime. - Cino Hilliard, Feb 15 2004
