FORMULA

a(n) = min_{p prime, p|C(2n,n)} max_{k, p^k|C(2n,n)} p^k.

a(n) = min_{k=0..A067434(n)-1} A226078(n,k).

EXAMPLE

a(89) = 9: C(2*89,89) = 2^4 * 3^2 * 5^3 * 7^2 * 11^1 * ... * 173^1, the smallest prime power is 3^2 = 9.  3^2 is the largest prime power for prime 3 dividing C(2*89,89).

a(9993) = 59: 59^1 is the largest power of 59 dividing C(2*9993,9993), it is smaller than the largest powers of all other prime factors.

MAPLE

a:= proc(n) local h, i, m, p;

      p:=1; m:=infinity;

      while p < m do p:= nextprime(p); i:= 0;

         h:= 2*n; while h>0 do h:=iquo(h, p); i:=i+h od;

         h:= n;   while h>0 do h:=iquo(h, p); i:=i-2*h od;

         if i>0 then m:= min(m, p^i) fi

      od; m

    end:

seq(a(n), n=1..100);
