FORMULA
a(n) = {m}_n * (-1)^{Pi(m) - Pi(m-1)}
where {m}_n is the smallest root of {m^k}_n (the n-th perfect power with positive integer base m corresponding to largest integer exponent k) and Pi(m) is the prime counting function evaluated at m.
a(n) = m * (-1)^{Pi(m) - Pi(m-1)}, with m = A025478(n) = {A001597(n)}^{1/{A025479(n)}}.
