Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

For n>1 it is always true that a(n) > 0 because for dimension n we always have the n-dimensional cuboid with all edge lengths = 2n = A062971(n) having hypervolume (2n)^n equal to "surface hyper-area". - Jonathan Vos Post, Mar 15 2006

EXAMPLE

From Joseph Myers, Feb 24 2004: (Start)

For n=2 the cuboids are 3 X 6 and 4 X 4.

For n=3 the cuboids are 3 X 7 X 42, 3 X 8 X 24, 3 X 9 X 18, 3 X 10 X 15, 3 X 12 X 12, 4 X 5 X 20, 4 X 6 X 12, 4 X 8 X 8, 5 X 5 X 10, 6 X 6 X 6. (End)

For n=4 see the Marcus link.
