Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

a(n) is prime for n in A156585. Conjecture: gpf(a(n)) = gpf(Phi(n,2^n)), where Phi(n,2^n) = A070526(n). - Thomas Ordowski, Feb 16 2014

The conjecture fails at n = 26, where 3340762283952395329506327023033 > 215656329382891550920192462661. Next counterexample for n = 30, but no odd counterexamples found so far. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Feb 17 2014
