Table of n, a(n) for n=2..58.


FORMULA

a(n) = ceiling(3/(2^(1/n)1)). For most n, a(n) = floor(3n/log(2)1/2), but there are exceptions, starting with n=32 and n=52113.


EXAMPLE

a(2)=8 as 7^2=49, 8^2=64, 10^2=100 and 11^2=121.


PROG

(PARI) for (n=2, 50, x=2; while (2*x^n<=((x+3)^n), x++); print1(x", "))
