a(n) is the smallest k such that the sum of n consecutive values M(k) + M(k+1) + ... + M(k+n1) is zero, where M(m) is the Moebius (or Möbius) function (A008683).

EXAMPLE

a(1)= 4 => M(4) = 0;
a(2)= 1 => M(1)+ M(2) = 11 = 0;
a(3)= 4 => M(4)+ M(5)+ M(6) = 01+1 = 0;
a(4)= 6 => M(6)+ M(7)+ M(8) + M(9) = 11+0+0 = 0;
a(5)= 8 => M(8)+ M(9)+ M(10)+ M(11)+ M(12) = 0+0+11+0 = 0.
