COMMENTS

It is believed that a(n) <= n+2 for all n > 0.
a(n) also exists for all n < 1.  Robert G. Wilson v, Jun 05 2014


LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..83.


EXAMPLE

(2^2+1)/(2+1) = 5/3 is not an integer. (3^3+1)/(3+1) = 28/4 = 7 is an integer. Thus a(1) = 3.


MATHEMATICA

f[n_] := Block[{k = 2}, While[ Mod[ PowerMod[k, k, k + n] + n, k + n] != 0, k++]; k]; Array[f, 90] (* Robert G. Wilson v, Jun 05 2014 *)


PROG

(PARI) a(n)=for(k=2, 1000, s=(k^k+n)/(k+n); if(floor(s)==s, return(k)));
n=1; while(n<100, print(a(n), ", "); n+=1) \\ corrected by Michel Marcus, May 24 2014
