COMMENTS

The largest known term of this sequence is a(63) = 1132  924 = 208. This seems rather strange for a(63) > 2*100+7 where 100 = max {a(k) k < 63}. {1,2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20,22,24,26,28,30,32,34,42,50,52,56,62,72,100,208} is the set of the distinct first 75 terms of the sequence. What is the smallest number m such that a(m) = 36?  Farideh Firoozbakht, May 30 2014
