COMMENTS

Clearly m = 1 always works, so a(n) exists for all n.  Farideh Firoozbakht, Nov 23 2007
105 is the smallest number n such that a(n)=1. This means that if n<105 there exists at least one number m greater than 1 such that m is the nth power of the sum of its digits while 1 is the only number m such that m is the 105th power of the sum of its digits. A133509 gives n such that a(n) = 1.  Farideh Firoozbakht, Nov 23 2007

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 19683 = 27^3 and no bigger number can have this property. (This has been established in the Murthy reference.)
a(4) = 1679616 = (1+6+7+9+6+1+6)^4 = 36^4.


MATHEMATICA

meanDigit = 9/2; translate = 900; upperm[1] = translate;
upperm[n_] := Exp[ProductLog[1, Log[10]/(meanDigit*n)]] + translate;
a[n_] := (For[max = m = 1, m <= upperm[n], m++, If[m == Total[ IntegerDigits[ m^n ] ], max = m]]; max^n);
