This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing. Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 1,3 COMMENTS Some of the larger entries may only correspond to probable primes. Some or all of the zero values are merely conjectures. - N. J. A. Sloane a(n)=0 for n = 3m+2 (1<=m) (they are all divisible by 3) or n=11m+10 (1<=m<9) (they are all divisible by 11) and if a(n) is not 0 then n and a(n) are of opposite parity. - Robert G.
