COMMENTS
The factorizations are 2, 3^2, (5^4)*(19^4), (7^6)*(193^6), (11^10)*(131^10), (13^12)*(197^12), (17^16)*(79^16). Since the squares of all odd primes greater than 3 are 1 mod 12, the refactorable a(n)-1 is divisible by 12 whenever n>=3.

FORMULA
a(n) is the first integer of the form (k*p)^(p-1) for some k such that a(n)-1 and a(n) are refactorable and the smallest prime divisor of a(n) is prime(n).
EXAMPLE
Simplest: a(2)=9=3^2 since tau(9)=3; 9-1=8=2^3 so tau(8)=4.
