Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

For k=0, the GCD equals 1. Increasing k, the GCD first exceeds 1 at k = A118119(n), and that GCD is a(n).

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=2..78.

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 5 because 2^2 + 1 = 5 and 3^2+1 = 2*5;

a(3) = 7 because 5^3 + 1 = 2*3^2*7 and 6^3 + 1 = 7*31.

MAPLE

A186710 := proc(n) local k , g; for k from 1 do g := igcd(k^n+1, (k+1)^n+1) ; if g>1 then return g ; end if; end do: end proc: # R. J. Mathar, Mar 07 2011
