 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS The sequence 1, 2, 720!, 4!!!!, ... ,n!!...! (n times) grows too rapidly to have its own entry. See Hofstadter. a(n) is divisible by 2^A245087(n) but not by 2^(A245087(n)+1), A245087 being the number of trailing zeros in its binary expansion. Also, for n>1, the largest prime divisor of a(n) is the largest prime <= n!, which is listed in A006990(n). - Stanislav Sykora, Jul 14 2014 REFERENCES Archimedeans Problems Drive, Eureka, 37 (1974), 11.
