COMMENTS

This is the analog of the sequence of Pisano periods (A001175) for binomial factors.

n^2 always divides a(n).

A prime p is a factor of a(n) if and only if it is a factor of n (i.e., a(n) and n have the same prime factors).

FORMULA

a(n)=n^2 if n is a prime or a power of a prime.

EXAMPLE

a(3)=9 since binomial(m+3,3) mod 3, m>=0, is periodic with period length 3^2=9 (see A133883).

a(6)=72 since binomial(m+6,6) mod 6, m>=0, is periodic with period length 4*6^2=72 (see A133886).
