COMMENTS

Complement of A019434 in A000215.

Intersection of A000215 and A002808.

Fermat numbers F_i such that A152155(i) != -1, where i is the index of F in A000215.

Is this sequence infinite?

All the terms are Fermat pseudoprimes to base 2 (A001567). For a proof see, e.g., Jaroma and Reddy (2007). - Amiram Eldar, Jul 24 2021
