 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS For n=1 see Catalan numbers A000108. Heuristically one can observe that a(n) + n has a 'high' valuation of 2. For n = 17..25 we have 2^8|(a(n) + n + 1). Using this heuristic we find a(26)..a(31) <= 267780069, 469745636, 671088611, 1879015394, 2146959329 and 6442418144 respectively. - David A. Corneth, Mar 28 2021 LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..25. David A. Corneth, PARI program FORMULA C(2m, m)=A*((m+1)(m+2)...(m+n-1)(m+n)); a(n) is the smallest such m belonging to n: a(n)=Min(m; Mod(A000984(m), (m+n)!/m!)=0) EXAMPLE n=4: a(4)=19 means that C(38,19)=35345263800 is divisible by (19+1)(19+2)(19+3)(19+4)=23!/19!=20*21*22*23=215520; the quotient is 166315. Smaller (<19) central binomial coefficients are not divisible by such a product of 4 successive terms; the corresponding quotients for n = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,... are 1, 1, 13, 166315, 9120910752273999,...
