Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Every number of this sequence is composite, and every composite number appears in this sequence.

Viewed as a square array this sequence is the multiplication table with headers starting at 2: A002260 and A004736 being indexing functions for square arrays, a(n)=T(i,j) with i=A002260(n) and j=A004736(n), T(i,j)=(i+1)(j+1). - Luc Rousseau, Oct 15 2017

FORMULA

a(n) = ((2 n + round(sqrt(2n)) - round(sqrt(2n))^2)/2 + 1)((2 - 2n + round(sqrt(2n)) + round(sqrt(2n))^2)/2 + 1).
