Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

EXAMPLE

a(5) = 5 plus the maximum of {1*2,2*5} = 5+10=15.

a(6) = 6 plus the maximum of {1*15,2*9,5*5} = 6+25=31.

MAPLE

A054253 := proc(n) local i, j; option remember; if n<=2 then n else j := 0; for i from 1 to n-1 do if procname(i)*procname(n-i) >= j then j := procname(i)*procname(n-i); end if; end do; n+j; end if; end proc;

# second Maple program:

a:= proc(n) option remember; n +`if`(n>2,

      max(seq(a(i)*a(n-i), i=1..n/2)), 0)

    end:

seq(a(n), n=1..42);  # Alois P. Heinz, Apr 03 2020

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := a[n] = If[n <= 2, n, n + Max[a[#] a[n-#]& /@ Range[n-1]]];
