COMMENTS

The lcm of the terms in row n of A053383. It appears that the Bernoulli polynomial B(n,x) is irreducible for all even n.
This sequence appears in a paper of Bazsó & Mező who use this sequence to give necessary and sufficient condition for power sums to be integer polynomials.  Istvan Mezo, Mar 20 2016
In "The denominators of power sums of arithmetic progressions" Corollary 1, we give a simple way to compute a(n) without using Bernoulli polynomials. Namely, a(n) equals (product of the primes dividing n+1) times (product of the primes p <= (n+1)/(2+(n+1 mod 2)) not dividing n+1 such that the sum of the basep digits of n+1 is at least p).
