Remove the '1's from the sequence to get A152680.

FORMULA
a(n)*A177863(n) == -1 (mod prime(n)), by Wilson's theorem. - Jonathan Sondow, May 14 2010
a(n) = A177860(n) modulo prime(n). - Jonathan Sondow, May 14 2010
EXAMPLE
a(4) = 1 because the quadratic residues of prime(4) = 7 are 1, 2, and 4, and 1*2*4 = 8 == 1 (mod 7). - Jonathan Sondow, May 14 2010
MAPLE
seq((-1)^iquo(ithprime(i)+2, 2) mod ithprime(i), i=1..113);
MATHEMATICA
Table[Mod[ Apply[Times, Flatten[Position[ Table[JacobiSymbol[i, Prime[n]], {i, 1, Prime[n] - 1}], 1]]], Prime[n]], {n, 1, 80}] (* Jonathan Sondow, May 14 2010 *)
