(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A053405 Definition: A kara B = C, where C is the least nonnegative integer such that: C * B >= A and C * (B-1) < A. Sequence gives smallest a such that n kara a is undefined. 2

EXAMPLE

For instance, 7 kara 4 = 2 because 2 * 4 > 7 and 2 * 3 < 7. 7 kara 5 is undefined: 7 kara 5 != 2 because 2 * (5-1) > 7 and 7 kara 5 != 1 because 1 * 5 < 7. 4 kara 3 is undefined: 4 kara 2 = 2; 4 kara 4 = 1.

MATHEMATICA

kara[a_, b_] := Module[{r, c}, r = Reduce[c*b >= a && c*(b-1) < a, c, Integers]; If[r === False, Null, c /. {ToRules[r]} // First]]; a[n_] := For[k = 2, True, k++, If[!IntegerQ[n ~kara~ k], Return[k]]]; Table[a[n], {n, 4, 88}] (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Sep 13 2013 *)

PROG

(Haskell)

a053405 n = head [a | a <- [1..], n `kara` a == Nothing] where

   kara a b = if null ks then Nothing else Just $ head ks

              where ks = [c | c <- [1..a], a <= c * b, a > c * (b - 1)]
