%F a(n) = n - Sum_{k=1..floor(log_2(n))} mu(k)*[n^(1/k)-1]), where mu = A008683. - _David W. Wilson_, Oct 09 2002

%F a(n) = O(sqrt(n)) (conjectured). a(n) = A076411(n+1) = Sum_{k=1..n} A075802(k). - _Chayim Lowen_, Jul 24 2015

%F The conjecture is true: The number of squares < n is n^(1/2) + O(1). The number of higher powers < n is nonnegative and less than n^(1/3) log_2(n). Thus a(n) = n^(1/2) + O(n^(1/3) log n). - _Robert Israel_, Jul 31 2015

%e a(27) = 7 as the perfect powers <= 27 are 1, 4, 8, 9, 16, 25 and 27.
