COMMENTS

Consider a text mode screen which is a fixed number of character columns wide. Text only breaks at the screen width, there is no manual line break. Then a(n) is the largest screen width in terms of characters so that a string of n printable characters can be perfectly centrally aligned on this and all smaller widths.

a(n) = n for n in {1, 2, 4, 6, 10}, otherwise a(n) < n. The sequence is unbounded.

EXAMPLE

a(22) = 4 because

  22 mod 1 = 0 where r = 0,

  22 mod 2 = 0 where r = 0,

  22 mod 3 = 1 where 3 - 1 is even,

  22 mod 4 = 2 where 4 - 2 is even, but

  22 mod 5 = 2 where r > 0 and 5 - 2 is odd.

PROG

(PARI) a(n) = {ok = 1; k = 1; while(ok, v = vector(k, b, if ((n % b)==0, 0, b - (n%b))); ok = #select(x->((x % 2)==0), v) == k; if (ok, k++); ); k--; } \\ Michel Marcus, Jan 23 2017
