COMMENTS

The indices of the records in A076259 are 1, 3, 6, 31, 150, 515, 13391, 131964, 664313,... - R. J. Mathar, Jun 25 2010

Applying the test to squarefree numbers up to 10 million only produces the first ten terms of the sequence. - Harvey P. Dale, May 04 2011

Conjecture: a(n) ~ log(A020754(n))/2. - Thomas Ordowski, Jul 23 2015

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..18.

FORMULA

a(n) = A020755(n) - A020754(n). - M. F. Hasler, Dec 28 2015

EXAMPLE

The first gap in A005117 occurs between 1 and 2 and has length 1. The next larger gap occurs between 3 and 5 and has length 2. The next larger gap is between 7 and 10 and has length 3. Etc. We are only interested in gaps that set new records.

MAPLE

a := 1 ; for n from 2 do if A076259(n) > a then print(n, A076259(n)) ; a := A076259(n) ; end if; end do: # R. J. Mathar, Jun 25 2010
