(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A259909 n-th Wieferich prime to base prime(n), i.e., primes p such that p is the n-th solution of the congruence (prime(n))^(p-1) == 1 (mod p^2). 1
1093, 1006003, 40487 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



Main diagonal of table T(b, p) of Wieferich primes p to prime bases b (that table is not yet in the OEIS as a sequence).

a(4), if it exists, corresponds to A123693(4) and is larger than 9.7*10^14 (cf. Dorais, Klyve, 2011).

a(5), if it exists, corresponds to the 5th base-11 Wieferich prime and is larger than approximately 5.9*10^13 (cf. Fischer).

a(6), if it exists, corresponds to A128667(6) and is larger than approximately 5.9*10^13 (cf. Fischer).
