COMMENTS

From the definition, a(n) = A000217(n) - (n + 1) if A000217(n) - (n + 1) > (n + 1), or 0 otherwise, where A000217 are the triangular numbers.

FORMULA

a(n) = (n+1)*(n-2)/2 = A000096(n-2) for n >= 5 and a(n) = 0 for n <= 4. - M. F. Hasler, Jan 10 2011

EXAMPLE

For n = 3 we have A000217(3) = 6, A000217(4) = 10; there is no k such that 10 - 6 = 4 = (6 mod k), hence a(3) = 0.

For n = 5 we have A000217(5) = 15, A000217(6) = 21; 9 is the largest k such that 21 - 15 = 6 = (15 mod k), hence a(5) = 9; a(5) = A000217(5) - (5 + 1) = 15 - 6 = 9.

For n = 24 we have A000217(24) = 300, A000217(25) = 325; 275 is the largest k such that 325 - 300 = 25 = (300 mod k), hence a(24) = 275; a(24) = A000217(24) - (24 + 1) = 275.
