FORMULA

a(n) = 3^A054861(n) = 3^([n/3]+[n/9]+[n/27]+[n/81]+ ...).

a(n) = prod_{i=1..n} A038500(i). - Tom Edgar, Apr 30 2014

a(n) = 3^(n/2 + O(log n)). - Charles R Greathouse IV, Aug 05 2015

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 3 because in S_3 the Sylow 3-subgroup is the subgroup generated by the 3-cycles (123) and (132), its order is 3.
