COMMENTS

a(n) > n, with a(n)/n -> 1 as n -> infinity. - Robert Israel, May 28 2018

LINKS

Robert Israel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..7485

FORMULA

Let S(n, m) = Sum_{k=1..m} k^n. Define a(n) = min{ m | S(n, m)<m! }.

EXAMPLE

a(3)=6 because S(3,6)=441<720=6! but S(3,5)=225>=120=5! and so for S(3,j), j=0,1,2,3,4.

MAPLE

f:= proc(n) local k, L;

  L:= sum(k^n, k=1..n);

  for k from n+1 do

    L:= L + k^n;

    if L < k! then return k fi

  od

end proc:

map(f, [$0..100]); # Robert Israel, May 28 2018

PROG

(PARI) a(n) = {my(s = 0, ok = 0, m = 1); until (ok, s += m^n; if (s < m!, ok = 1, m++); ); return (m); } \\ Michel Marcus, Jul 15 2013
