%N a(n) is the smallest Niven number that has exactly n divisors or -1 if no such number exists.

%C If n is a prime number, then a(n) has the form p^(n-1), where p is a prime number such that p <= 9 * ((n-1) * log_10(p) +1).

%C For p <= 9 * ((n-1) * log_10 (p) +1), if there is no s >= 1 such that digsum(p^(n-1)) = p^s, then a(n) = -1. For example, for n = 7, the largest prime number p verifying p <= 9 * (6 * log_10 (p) +1) is 113, but no prime number q <= 113 has the property digsum(q^6) = q^s, for 1 <= s <= 6. Thus, a(7) = -1.

%e The number 81 = 3^4 is the smallest with 5 divisors and is a Niven number, so a(5) = 81.
