a(n) = 2 for n = {1,2,4,8,16,...}. Corresponding Fermat primes A019434 = {3, 5, 17, 257, 65537, ...}. a(n) = 3 for n = {3,9,13,25,27,29,95,107,153,159,...}. a(n) = 5 for n = {10,15,60,90,197,209,...}. a(n) = 7 for n = {18,47,112,155,273,...}. a(n) = 15 for n = {7,30,43,...}. a(28) = 4. a(31) = 56. a(144) = 9.
