COMMENTS

Appears to be the union of the perfect squares k^2 (for k>1) and the prime powers p^k (for k>1) with some exceptions, such as 2^3, 3^3, 2^7, etc.

The perfect powers except those of the form n^(p^m) where p and (n^(p^(m+1))-1)/(n^(p^m)-1) are primes, p>2 and m>=1. - Max Alekseyev, Mar 09 2009

EXAMPLE

A128164 begins with offset 2: {3, 3, 0, 3, 3, 5, 3, 0, 19, 17, 3, 5, 3, 3, 0, 3, ...}. Thus a(1) = 4, a(2) = 9, a(3) = 16.
