COMMENTS

A squared rectangle (which may be a square) is a rectangle dissected into a finite number, two or more, of squares. If no two of these squares have the same size the squared rectangle is perfect. The order of a squared rectangle is the number of constituent squares. By convention the sides of the subsquares are integers with no common factor.
A squared rectangle is simple if it does not contain a smaller squared rectangle. Every perfect square with the largest known side length for each order up to 33 is simple.
a(30) has a lower bound of 2710. a(31) to a(33) have lower bounds of 3443, 4611 and 5976 respectively (from J. B. Williams).  Geoffrey H. Morley, Jan 10 2013
