COMMENTS

Smallest odd number a(n) such that product of distinct prime divisors of (2^n)*a(n)*(2^n - a(n)) is the smallest available for a(n) <= 2^x - a(n) < 2^x.

Product of distinct prime divisors of (2^n)*a(n)*(2^n - a(n)) is also called radical: rad((2^n)*a(n)*(2^n - a(n))

For numbers 2^n - a(n) see A143701.

For minimal values of rad((2^n)*a(n)*(2^n - a(n)) see A143702.

Related to the abc conjecture. - M. F. Hasler, Nov 13 2008
