a(n) is the smallest gcd of two interior numbers on row n of Pascal's triangle ("interior" means that the 1's at the ends of the rows are excluded).

EXAMPLE

In row 8, the interior numbers 8, 28, 56 and 70; gcd(8, 28) = 4; gcd(8, 56) = 8; gcd(8, 70) = 2; gcd(28, 56) = 28; gcd(28, 70) = 14; gcd(56, 70) = 14. The smallest of these is 2, so a(8) = 2.
