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

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).
