COMMENTS

For all n, n*(n+k) + 1 is a square for k = 2.

Differs from A102305 at positions listed by A102306.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..54.

EXAMPLE

a(7) = 2 as 7*9 + 1 = 64 = 4^3, though 66 also qualifies but 2<66.

MATHEMATICA

Do[k = 0; While[i = n(n + k) + 1; !IntegerQ[i^(1/3)], k++ ]; Print[k], {n, 1, 55}]
