%N a(1) = 1; for n > 1, a(n) = largest proper divisor of n.

%C Seems equal to a(n)=Max{GCD[n,j]; j=n+1,..,2n-1} - _Labos Elemer_, May 22 2002. This is correct: No integer in range [n+1, 2n-1] has n as its divisor, but certainly at least one multiple of the largest proper divisor of n will occur there [e.g., if it is n/2, then at n + (n/2)]. - _Antti Karttunen_, Dec 18 2014
