COMMENTS

Sequence differs from A093919; first divergences are at indices 31, 40, 48, 59.

Main diagonal is A003418.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..58.

FORMULA

T(n,k) = max{ lcm(x_1,...,x_k) ; 0 < x_1 < ... < x_k <= n }.

EXAMPLE

Triangle begins:

    [ 1 ],

    [ 2, 2 ],

    [ 3, 6, 6 ],

    [ 4, 12, 12, 12 ],

    [ 5, 20, 60, 60, 60 ],

    [ 6, 30, 60, 60, 60, 60 ].

MATHEMATICA

A179661[n_, k_]:=Max[LCM@@@Subsets[Range[n], {k}]];

A002260[n_]:=n-Binomial[Floor[1/2+Sqrt[2*n]], 2];

A002024[n_]:=Floor[1/2+Sqrt[2*n]];

A179661[n_]:=A179661[A002024[n], A002260[n]]
