COMMENTS

The word "discrete" is used to describe a string of consecutive divisors that is not part of a longer such string.

Does a(n) ever equal 0?

a(n) = A003418(n) iff n belongs to A181062; otherwise, a(n) > A003418(n). a(A181062(n)) = A051451(n).

EXAMPLE

a(5) = 3960 is divisible by 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12, but not 7 or 13. It is the smallest positive integer with a string of 5 consecutive divisors that is not part of a longer string.

From Gus Wiseman, Oct 16 2019: (Start)

The sequence of terms together with their divisors begins:

     1: {1}

     2: {1,2}

     6: {1,2,3,6}

    12: {1,2,3,4,6,12}

  3960: {1,2,...,8,9,10,11,12,...,1980,3960}

    60: {1,2,3,4,5,6,...,30,60}

   420: {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,...,210,420}

   840: {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,...,420,840}

CROSSREFS

The version taking only the longest run is A328449.

The longest run of divisors of n has length A055874(n).

Numbers whose divisors > 1 have no non-singleton runs are A088725.

The number of successive pairs of divisors of n is A129308(n).
