 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS Equivalently, for n >= 1, the least number > 1 of objects that can be arranged as a k-cube (k-dimensional hypercube) for all 1 <= k <= n. a(7) = 2^420 contains 127 decimal digits. From Jianing Song, Jul 20 2021: (Start) Let F_q be the finite field with q elements, then F_a(n) is the smallest extension field of F_2 such that every polynomial of degree at most n splits into linear factors. Union_{n>=0} F_a(n) is the algebraic clousre of F_2, which is the unique algebraically closed field with characteristic 2 and transcendence degree 0 (note that an algebraically closed field is uniquely determined by its characteristic and transcendence degree). Union_{n>=0} F_(2^(n!)) = Union_{n>=0} F_A050923(n) gives the same field. Obviously, here 2 can be replaced by any prime p provided that {a(n)} is defined as a(n) = p^A003418(n).
