COMMENTS

Denominators in binomial transform of 1/(n + 1)^2. - Paul Barry, Aug 06 2004

Construct a sequence S_n from n sequences b_1, b_2, ..., b_n of periods 1, 2, ..., n, respectively, say, b_1 = [1, 1, ...], b_2 = [1, 2, 1, 2, ...], ..., b_n = [1, 2, 3, ..., n, 1, 2, 3, ..., n, ...], by taking S_n = [b_1(1), b_2(1), ..., b_n(1), b_1(2), b_2(2), ..., b_n(2), ..., b_1(n), b_2(n), ..., b_n(n), ...] (by listing the b_i sequences in rows and taking each column in turn as the next n terms of S_n). Then a(n) is the period of sequence S_n. - Rick L. Shepherd, Aug 21 2006

This is a sequence that goes in strictly ascending order. The related sequence A003418 also goes in ascending order but has consecutive repeated terms. Since n increases, then so too does a(n) even when A003418(n) doesn't. - Alonso del Arte, Nov 25 2012

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..26.

FORMULA

a(n) = A003418(n) * n. - Martin Fuller, Jan 03 2006

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 4 because that the least common multiple of 1 and 2 is 2, and 2 * 2 = 4.

a(3) = 18 because lcm(1,2,3) = 6, and 3 * 6 = 18.

a(4) = 48 because lcm(1, 2, 3, 4) = 12, and 4 * 12 = 48.
