Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

 A269665 For n>=0, let A_n be the set of natural numbers k such that (k^n + 1) | k!. If A is nonempty, then a(n) is the least element of A_n; otherwise a(n) = 0. 1

 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS a(n) is the smallest k such that (k^n + 1) | k! if it exists, otherwise a(n) = 0. LINKS EXAMPLE For n=2, a(2) is equal to 18 because k=18 is the least natural number k such that (k^2+1)|k! (see A120416).
