This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing. Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 1,4 COMMENTS a(n) for n >= 2 equals LCM of minimal and maximal exponents in prime factorization of n. a(n) for n >= 2 deviates from (A072411), first different term is a(360), a(360) = 3, A072411(360)= 6. LINKS Antti Karttunen, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000 FORMULA a(1) = 0, a(p) = 1, a(pq) = 1, a(pq...z) = 1, a(p^k) = k, for p = primes (A000040), pq = product of two distinct primes (A006881), pq...z = product of k (k > 2) distinct primes p, q, ..., z (A120944), p^k = prime powers (A000961(n) for n > 1) k = natural numbers (A000027). EXAMPLE For n = 12 = 2^2 * 3^1 we have a(12) = lcm(2,1) = 2. For n = 144 = 2^4 * 3^2 we have a(144) = lcm(4,2) = 4.
