Dear SeqFans,
I formulated the following theorems (easy to prove):
The smallest numerator of (2^n-1) / n is not squarefree
if and only if n = k ord_q(2) for k = 1, 2, 3, ...;
where q is a Wieferich prime (1093 and 3511).
Cf. https://oeis.org/A272359
The smallest numerator of (2^n+1) / n is not squarefree
if and only if n = (2k+1) ord_q(2) / 2 for k = 0, 1, 2, ...;
where q is a Wieferich prime (1093).
Cf. https://oeis.org/A272361
Are these well-known facts?
Best regards,
Thomas

ord_1093(2) = 364,
ord_3511(2) = 1755;
i.e. A002326((q-1)/2).
