COMMENTS

a(n) is the smallest area of an integersided rectangle able to enclose without contact an integersided rectangle of area n. The enclosing rectangle has sides A033676(n)+1 and A033677(n)+1. See the first formula below.  Peter Munn, Apr 26 2019

FORMULA

a(n^2) = (n+1)^2; a(n^2n) = n^2 + n.
a(p) = 2*(p+1) for p prime.


EXAMPLE

For example, a(6)=12
since 6*7 is not divisible by any number between 6 and 7,
and 6*8 is not divisible by any number between 6 and 8,
and 6*9 is not divisible by any number between 6 and 9,
and 6*10 is not divisible by any number between 6 and 10,
and 6*11 is not divisible by any number between 6 and 11,
but 6*12 is divisible by 9 which is between 6 and 12.
