This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.



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.

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

a(n) = A020755(n) - A020753(n); also a(n) = A020754(n+[n>10]) - 1 at least for n < 19. - M. F. Hasler, Dec 28 2015


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


(PARI) A020754(n)=for(k=L=1, 9e9, issquarefree(k)||next; k-L>=n&&return(L); L=k) \\ For illustrative purpose only, not useful for n>10. - M. F. Hasler, Dec 28 2015
