COMMENTS

First time n appears is given in A001917.

Smallest p (let it be the k-th prime) such that A001917(k) = n, or the smallest prime which has ratio n in base 2.

First cyclic number (in base 2) of n-th degree (or n-th order): the reciprocals of these numbers belong to one of n different cycles. Each cycle has (a(n) - 1)/n digits.

Conjecture: a(n) is defined for all n.
