 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS p divides a(p+1) for odd primes p. p^2 divides a(p+1) for prime p = {3, 7, 71, ...}. Determinant of n X n Vandermonde matrix of numbers 1,2,...,n equals Product_{k=1..n-1} k! = A000178(n-1) (Superfactorials). LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..18. Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics, Vandermonde Matrix FORMULA a(n) = Sum_{i=1..n, j=1..n} i^(j-1). a(n) = n + Sum_{i=2..n} (i^n-1)/(i-1). MATHEMATICA Table[ n + Sum[ (i^n-1)/(i-1), {i, 2, n} ], {n, 1, 25} ] CROSSREFS Cf. A060946 = Trace of Vandermonde matrix of numbers 1, 2, ..., n. Cf. A000178 = Superfactorials: product of first n factorials.
