%N Largest squared prime factor of the odd Catalan number (A038003(n)) or 1, if it is squarefree.

%C Odd Catalan number is A038003(n) = A000108(2^n-1) = binomial(2^(n+1)-2, 2^n-1)/(2^n).

%e There is no a(1) because A038003(1) = 1.

%e a(2) = 1 because A038003(2) = 5 which is squarefree.

%e a(3) = 1 because A038003(3) = 429 = 3*11*13 which is squarefree.

%e a(4) = 3 because A038003(4) = 9694845 = 3^2*5*17*19*23*29.
