COMMENTS

Also least odd number with exactly n divisors.  Lekraj Beedassy, Aug 30 2006
If n is prime, a(n)=3^(n1).  Zak Seidov, Apr 18 2006
a(2n1) = {1,9,81,729,225,59049,...} are the squares. A122842[n] = Sqrt[ a(2n1) ] = {1,3,9,27,15,243,729,45,6561,19683,135,177147,225,105,4782969,14348907,1215,...}.  Alexander Adamchuk, Sep 13 2006
Also the least number k such that there are n partitions of k whose elements are consecutive integers. I.e., 1=1, 3=1+2=3, 9=2+3+4=4+5=9, 15=1+2+3+4+5=4+5+6=7+8=15, etc.  Robert G. Wilson v, Jun 02 2007
The politeness of an integer, A069283(n), is defined to be the number of its nontrivial runsum representations, and the sequence 3, 9, 15, 81, 45, 729, 105, ... represents the least integers to have a politeness of 1, 2, 3, 4, ... This is also the sequence of smallest integers with n+1 odd divisors and so apart from the leading 1, is precisely A038547.  Ant King, Sep 23 2009
a(n) is also the least number k with the property that the symmetric representation of sigma(k) has n subparts.  Omar E. Pol, Dec 31 2016

FORMULA

a(n) = A119265(n,n).  Reinhard Zumkeller, May 11 2006
It was suggested by Alexander Adamchuk that for all n >= 1, we have a(3^(n1)) = (p(n)#/2)^2 = (A002110(n)/2)^2 = A070826(n)^2. But this is false! E.g., (p(n)#/2)^2=3^2 5^2 7^2 ...23^2 29^2 does indeed have 3^9 odd factors, but it is greater than 3^8*5^2 7^2 ...23^2 which has 9*3*3*3*3*3*3*3 = 9*3^7=3^9 odd factors.  Richard Sabey, Oct 06 2007.
a(A053640(m)) = a(A000005(A053624(m))) = A053624(m).  Rick L. Shepherd, Apr 20 2008
