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

This is an alternate version of A205531, which should be considered as the main entry. One has A205526(n)=A205531(n) whenever the latter is nonzero.

Related to the 4.X Selfridge Conjecture by P. Underwood, which states that p is prime iff such an y exists.

Records are [p, y] = [A205532(n), A205534(n)] = [2, 1], [3, 3], [19, 4], [61, 5], [109, 6], [1009, 9], [2689, 11], [8089, 15], [33049, 17], [53881, 21], [87481, 27], [483289, 29], [515761, 35], [1083289, 39], [3818929, 45], ...
