EXAMPLE

a(5) = 4 since the four highly composite numbers (A002182) in the interval [5!,6!) are 120, 180, 240, and 360.

MATHEMATICA

nn = 9; Table[Count[#, k_ /; n! <= k < (n + 1)!], {n, nn}] &[Block[{a = 0}, Reap[Do[b = DivisorSigma[0, k]; If[b > a, a = b; Sow[k]], {k, (nn + 1)!}]][[-1, 1]]]] (* Michael De Vlieger, Oct 31 2016 *)
