COMMENTS

The five terms for m = 2,3,4,5,6 were computed with the aid of PARI/GP. But it seems to be rather difficult to compute higher terms, if they exist at all.

The distribution of squarefree integers with exactly m prime factors is given in the book by Montgomery and Vaughan, Multiplicative Number Theory, but I do not have access to it and do not know whether it also addresses the problem of three consecutive numbers of this kind.

FORMULA

a(n) = A093550(n)-1. - M. F. Hasler, May 20 2014

EXAMPLE

33 = 3*11, 34 = 2*17, 35 = 5*7;

1309 = 7*11*17, 1310 = 2*5*131, 1311 = 3*19*23;

203433 = 3*19*43*83, 203434 = 2*7*11*1321, 203435 = 5*23*29*61;

16467033 = 3*11*17*149*197, 16467034 = 2*19*23*83*227, 16467035 = 5*13*37*41*167; (CPU time 48 seconds)

1990586013 = 3*13*29*67*109*241, 1990586014 = 2*23*37*43*59*461, 1990586015 = 5*11*17*19*89*1259. (CPU time 2 hours and 34 minutes)
