COMMENTS
For n >= 2 a(n)>=2 with equality iff n is prime.
The minimal number of subgroups is A000005, the number of divisors of n, attained by the cyclic group of order n. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Dec 27 2016

FORMULA
a(n)=Maximum of {A061034(n), A083573(n)}. - Lekraj Beedassy, Oct 22 2004
(C_2)^m has A006116(m) subgroups, so this is a lower bound if n is a power of 2 (e.g., a(16) >= 67). - N. J. A. Sloane, Dec 01 2007
EXAMPLE
a(6) = 6 because there are two groups with 6 elements: C_6 with 4 subgroups and S_3 with 6 subgroups.
PROG
(GAP) a:=function(n)
local gr, mx, t, g;
mx := 0;
gr := AllSmallGroups(n);
for g in gr do
t := Sum(ConjugacyClassesSubgroups(g), Size);
mx := Maximum(mx, t);
od;
return mx;
end; # Charles R Greathouse IV, Dec 27 2016
