COMMENTS

This sequence consists of the union of an infinite number of arithmetic progressions. Let p be an irregular prime and let {m1, m2, ...} be even numbers < p*(p-1) such that p^2 | N(mi). Then each pair (p, mi) is a second-order irregular pair. This leads to the arithmetic progression n = mi + p*(p-1)*k for each i and for k = 0, 1, 2, 3, ... If we restrict the sequence to those pairs with mi < 10000, we find that only the pairs (37, 284), (59, 914), (67, 3292), (101, 5768), (103, 228), (157, 6302) and (271, 1434) contribute terms to this sequence.
