COMMENTS

Golomb shows that solutions exist for each n>1.

a(n) is the smallest natural number m such that m = pi(n*m). For all known terms of this sequence the relation, " 2.4*a(n) < a(n+1) < 2.7*a(n) + 7 " is true. A038627(n) gives number of natural solutions of the equation m = pi(n*m). - Farideh Firoozbakht, Jan 09 2005

EXAMPLE

pi(3059) = 437 and 3059/437 = 7, so a(7)=437
