COMMENTS

Conjecture: all odd Catalan numbers have smallest factor 3, except cat[3] has smallest divisor 5 and cat[31] and cat[255] have smallest divisor 7 (checked up to cat[ -1+2^2048 ]).

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..79.

EXAMPLE

a(5)=0 because 2^5-1= 31 and cat[31]= 7.11.17.19.37.41.43.47.53.59.61 so the power of 3 is zero.

MATHEMATICA

pow3[ nfac_ ] := (nfac - Plus @@ IntegerDigits[ nfac, 3 ])/(3-1) powcat3[ n_ ] := pow3[ 2n ]-pow3[ n+1 ]-pow3[ n ]; Table[ powcat3[ 2^n-1 ], {n, 2048} ]
