FORMULA

a(4k)=1 for k>=0, because gcd(1^(4k)+9, 2^(4k)+9) = gcd(10, 16^k-1) = 5.

EXAMPLE

For n=1, gcd(m^n+9, (m+1)^n+9) = gcd(m+9, m+10) = 1, therefore a(1)=0.

For n=2, we have gcd(18^2+9, 19^2+9) = gcd(333, 370) = 37, and the pair (m,m+1)=(18,19) is the smallest which yields a GCD > 1, therefore a(2)=37.

For n=4k, see formula.
