FORMULA

a(n) = minimum k such that A002110(n) | (k(k+1)).

EXAMPLE

a(8) = 62985 since 62985*62986 = 2*3*5*7*11*13*17*19*409, i.e., it is divisible by the first 8 prime numbers (2,3,..,19).

MATHEMATICA

f[n_] := Block[{k = 1, p = Times @@ Prime@Range@n}, While[ !IntegerQ@ Sqrt[4k*p + 1], k++ ]; Floor@ Sqrt[k*p]]; Array[f, 15] (* Robert G. Wilson v, May 13 2006 *)

PROG

(PARI) P=primes(25); T=1; for(n=1, 25, T*=P[n]; m=T; for(k=2^(n-1), 2^n-1, u=binary(k); a=1; for(i=1, n, if(u[i], a*=P[i])); b=T/a; w=bezout(a, b); if(w[1]<=0, w[1]+=b); c=a*w[1]-1; m=min(m, c); w[1]=b-w[1]; if(w[1]<=0, w[1]+=b); c=a*w[1]; m=min(m, c)); print1(m, ", ")) \\ Robert Gerbicz, Aug 24 2006
