 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS This function is not monotone increasing, for example a(33) = 13 while a(34) = 11. Nicolas showed that a(n) ~ sqrt(n log n) and Grantham showed that a(n) <= 1.328 sqrt(n log n) for n > 4. Massias, Nicolas, & Robin conjecture that a(n) <= 1.265... sqrt(n log n) in this range with equality at n = 215. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Jun 02 2014 LINKS Alois P.
