COMMENTS

When searching for the smallest k such that n^k + 1 is not squarefree, I noticed that if n is even then n^(n+1) + 1 is not squarefree, and if n is of the form 4*j + 1 (j>0) then n^((n+1)/2) + 1 is not squarefree.

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..15.

FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{k = 0..n} (-1)^(n - k)*2^(k+1)*(n+1)^(k-1)*C(n+1, n - k).
