COMMENTS

Here 1, i, and i are counted as factors. The factor 1 is counted only in a(1). All these numbers of products of 2^k, 3, and 9.
Similar to A164073, which gives the least integer having n prime factors (over the Gaussian integers) shifted by 1.


LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..43.


EXAMPLE

a(2) = 9 because 9 = 3 * 3.
a(3) = 2 because 2 = i * (1 + i)^2.
a(4) = 6 because 6 = i * (1 + i)^2 * 3.


MATHEMATICA

nn = 30; t = Table[0, {nn}]; n = 0; found = 0; While[found < nn, n++; cnt = Total[Transpose[FactorInteger[n, GaussianIntegers > True]][[2]]]; If[cnt <= nn && t[[cnt]] == 0, t[[cnt]] = n; found++]]; t
