nextn {stats}R Documentation

Highly Composite Numbers


nextn returns the smallest integer, greater than or equal to n, which can be obtained as a product of powers of the values contained in factors. nextn is intended to be used to find a suitable length to zero-pad the argument of fft to so that the transform is computed quickly. The default value for factors ensures this.


nextn(n, factors = c(2,3,5))


n an integer.
factors a vector of positive integer factors.
