FORMULA

a(n) = (2*n+1 + lcm(2*n+1, 2*n+3, 2*n+5, 2*n+7))/2.

G.f.: (8*x^14 +10*x^12 -89*x^11 -153*x^10 -1777*x^9 -4173*x^8 -2445*x^7 -9489*x^6 -9563*x^5 -2427*x^4 -4243*x^3 -1735*x^2 -159*x-53) / ((x-1)^5*(x^2+x+1)^5). - Alois P. Heinz, Dec 08 2016

From Bernard Schott, Dec 08 2020: (Start)

If n == 1 (mod 3), a(n) = (2*n+1)* ((2*n+3)*(2*n+5)*(2*n+7)/3 + 1)/2.

If n == 0, 2 (mod 3), a(n) = (2*n+1)* ((2*n+3)*(2*n+5)*(2*n+7) + 1)/2. (End)

EXAMPLE

53 is the smallest positive integer such that 53, 54, 55, 56 are divisible by 1, 3, 5, 7 respectively, hence a(0) = 53. - Bernard Schott, Dec 08 2020
