COMMENTS

Suzuki proves that a(n) exists for each n. Vaughan proves that there are infinitely many k with a(n) = k and n > exp(exp(log 2 * log k/log log k)).

EXAMPLE

Phi(165) = x^80 + x^79 + x^78 - x^75 - x^74 - x^73 - x^69 - x^68 - x^67 + x^65 + 2x^64 + 2x^63 + x^62 - x^60 - x^59 - x^58 - x^54 - x^53 - x^52 + x^50 + 2x^49 + 2x^48 + 2x^47 + x^46 - x^44 - x^43 - x^42 - x^41 - x^40 - x^39 - x^38 - x^37 - x^36 + x^34 + 2x^33 + 2x^32 + 2x^31 + x^30 - x^28 - x^27 - x^26 - x^22 - x^21 - x^20 + x^18 + 2x^17 + 2x^16 + x^15 - x^13 - x^12 - x^11 - x^7 - x^6 - x^5 + x^2 + x + 1, with 2 as the coefficient of x^16 (among others), and this is the least k for which 2 appears, so a(2) = 165.
