COMMENTS

The sequence continues: ?,30240,184320,3932160,103680,40320,?,129600,737280,60480,176400,80640,?,430080,100800 where ? is a value > 20000000. A value always exists since 3*(2^(i+1)) is an upper bound for the i-th term (i odd) and 5*3*(2^((i+2)/2)) is an upper bound for i even. Based on these limits, the bounds on the 31st, 37th and 43rd terms are 12884901888, 824633720832 and 52776558133248 respectively. - Larry Reeves (larryr(AT)acm.org), Dec 18 2002

Also the smallest integer that can be expressed as a difference of squares in exactly n ways. - J. M. Bergot, May 09 2019

EXAMPLE

45 = 45 = 13+15+17 = 5+7+9+11+13, 45 is the smallest number expressible in 3 ways, so a(3)=45.
