COMMENTS

a(7) is the first unknown value.
If m (in the table in Examples) is odd then a(m) >= A020754(m1). If m is even then a(m) >= A020754(2m1).  Jud McCranie, Sep 30 2020
a(12) (for m=17) is greater than 3.3*10^16.  Jud McCranie, Oct 16 2020

Specifically, 174 is squarefree, 177 is the next squarefree integer, and gcd(174,177) = 3; this is the first pair of consecutive squarefree numbers whose GCD is 3, so a(3)=174.  Jud McCranie, Nov 25 2019
