 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Proposition: n^(n-1) - 1 == 0 (mod (n-1)^2). Hence a(n) == 0 mod (n-1). a(n) is the common difference of the arithmetic progression in row n of A111568. Written in base n, a(n) has n-1 digits equal to 2 (for example, a(10)=222222222). - Emeric Deutsch, Aug 08 2005 LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..18.
