COMMENTS

The sequence continues: 28<=a(14)<=29, a(15)=36, 40<=a(16)<=41, 48<=a(17)<=50, 48<=a(18)<=61, 72 <= a(19) <= 76, 90 <= a(20) <= 96, a(21) = 126, a(22) = 176, a(23) = ... = a(41) = 276, 276<=a(42)<=288, a(43) = 344.
Seidel claims, without proof, that a(14)=28. This is NOT known. See Greaves, Koolen, Munemasa, and Szollosi, to appear in JCTA (2015).  Ferenc Szollosi, Aug 31 2015
