%N Inverse Mertens function: smallest k such that |M(k)| = n, where M(x) is Mertens's function A002321.

%C From _Torlach Rush_, Oct 11 2018: (Start)

%C For k <= 10^7:

%C - a(n) is squarefree.

%C - if a(n) > M(k) then A008683(a(n)) is negative.

%C - if a(n) = M(k) then A008683(a(n)) is positive. (End)

%e M(31) = -4, smallest one equal to +-4.
