COMMENTS

Conjecture: (i) a(n) > 0 for all n > 0. In other words, every prime p has a primitive root 0 < g < p of the form k^2 + 1, where k is an integer.
(ii) If p > 3 is a prime not equal to 13, then p has a primitive root 0 < g < p which is of the form k^2  1, where k is a positive integer.
See also A239963 for a similar conjecture.

EXAMPLE

a(6) = 1 since 1^2 + 1 = 2 is a primitive root modulo prime(6) = 13.
a(11) = 1 since 4^2 + 1 = 17 is a primitive root modulo prime(11) = 31.
a(20) = 1 since 8^2 + 1 = 65 is a primitive root modulo prime(20) = 71.
a(22) = 1 since 6^2 + 1 = 37 is a primitive root modulo prime(22) = 79.
a(36) = 1 since 9^2 + 1 = 82 is a primitive root modulo prime(36) = 151.
