Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

First values of k and n such that k > 100 are: k=114, n=6041; for k > 200: k=210, n=26171; for k > 300: k=357, n=218084; for k > 400: k=402, n=576239.

Additionally, for k > 500: k=585, n=3569114; for k > 600: k=630, n=3802301; for k > 700: k=744, n=24307841; for k > 800: k=855, n=25051934; for k > 900: k=1008, n=54168539. Other cases k > 900: k=945, n=74380946, k=915, n=89992964, k=939, n=118991066. - Zak Seidov, May 23 2007

It is easily proved that for n > 2, a(n) >= A089128(n+1). The first inequality is a(21) = 4. - Franklin T. Adams-Watters, May 16 2018
