COMMENTS

Conjecturally, a(n) << log^2 n (with constant around 8/e^gamma in the supremum). [Charles R Greathouse IV, Dec 27 2011]

Except for a(2)=2, there are no terms = 2 mod 6 (as p^2+2 = 0 mod 3 for primes p > 3). Also, only 1 and 2 appear once while all other terms may appear (infinitely) many times. [Zak Seidov, Apr 18 2012]
