Prime q=2*p+1 with primes b<c<p such that q^2|b^p-1 and q^2|c^p-1

Comments: (p,q) is a Sophie Germain prime pair; (b,q) and (c,q)
are Wieferich prime pairs; each of (b,c) is a square modulo q^2.
The sequence is now complete up to the 42nd term, q=151565087.
Mike Oakes set a puzzle on a more general case with primes such
that b<p1<q, c<p2<q, b<c, q^2|b^p1-1 and q^2|c^p2-1. His sequence
is complete only up q=27370727, containing only two new known
primes, q=2452757 and q=22796069, with p1=p2=(q-1)/4, found in
a simple analysis of http://www.cecm.sfu.ca/~mjm/WieferichBarker

Hi , all ,

Not even draft yet , let alone published :
http://upforthecount.com/math/nnp.html
still needs a lot of work .
But , I have updated the top of the main table :
http://upforthecount.com/math/nnp2.txt
with complete factorizations now extending through
np ( 90 ) .

When is np ( n ) prime ?
So far , only for 1 , 2 and 3 .
When n mod 6 = 4 , np ( n ) has at least 3 algebraic
factors , 3 and n^2 + n + 1 ( twice ) .
But what about the residue ( primitive part ? ) ?
When is this prime ?
n t n^n + (n+1)^(n+1)
4 4 3 * 7 * 7 * 23
16 6 3 * 7 * 7 * 13 * 13 * 34041259347101651
Any others ?

Cheers ,

Walter
