Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

A107949 Smallest k_n such that there exist positive integers 0 < k_1 < ... < k_n such that there exists only one n-tuple of nonnegative integers (b_1, ..., b_n) - namely (1, ..., 1) - such that the sum of the b_i's equals n and the sum of the b_i*k_i's equals the sum of the k_i's. 0

COMMENTS

These are instances that show that the sequence is at most what is given: 1, 1+2, 1+2+4, 1+2+5+7, 1+2+6+12+14, 1+3+11+22+23+27, 1+2+6+22+44+46+54.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..7.

EXAMPLE

a(3)=4 because 1+2+3 = 2+2+2 but you can't write 1+2+4 as the sum of three numbers in {1,2,4} in another way.

a(4)=7 because, for instance, 2+4+5+6 = 2+5+5+5 but I'll let you check that you can't write 1+2+5+7 as the sum of four numbers in {1,2,5,7}, unless of course you take each one once.
