A127837 Numbers n such that ((n+1)^n-1)/n^2 is a prime. 3

COMMENTS

All terms are primes. Corresponding primes of the form ((n+1)^n-1)/n^2 are listed in A128466(n) = {2, 7, 311, 7563707819165039903, ...}.

It seems that if p is in the sequence then the first three numbers n such that n^2 divides (p+1)^n-1 are: 1, p & ((p+1)^p-1)/p. 2 is in the sequence and the first three terms of A127103 are : 1, 2 & ((2+1)^2-1)/2; 3 is in the sequence and the first three terms of A127104 are : 1, 3 & ((3+1)^3-1)/3; 5 is in the sequence and the first three terms of A127106 are : 1, 5 & ((5+1)^5-1)/5.

No other terms below 20000. - Max Alekseyev, Apr 25 2007

EXAMPLE

4357 is in the sequence because (4358^4357-1)/4357^2 is prime.
