FORMULA

a(n) = floor(n/{sum{1/k^2, k = 1..n}).
Approaches asymptotically n/zeta(2), zeta being the Riemann function.
For any e > 0 and large enough n, n/zeta(2) + 36/Pi^4  1 < a(n) < n/zeta(2) + 36/Pi^4 + e. (Possibly this holds even with e = 0 for n > 29.)  Charles R Greathouse IV, Apr 08 2015


PROG

(PARI) \\ Using only precisionindependent integer operations:
a(n)=(n*n!^2)\sum(k=1, n, (n!\k)^2)
