Invitation: celebrating 50 years of OEIS, 250000 sequences, and Sloane's 75th, there will be a conference at DIMACS, Rutgers, Oct 9-10 2014.

Hints
(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A046759 Economical numbers: write n as a product of primes raised to powers, let D(n) = number of digits in product, l(n) = number of digits in n; sequence gives n such that D(n) < l(n). 10

EXAMPLE

For n = 125 = 5^3, l(n) = 3 but D(n) = 2.

MATHEMATICA

ecoQ[n_] := Total[ Length /@ IntegerDigits /@ Flatten[ FactorInteger[n] /. {p_, 1} -> p]] < Length[ IntegerDigits[n]]; Select[ Range[5000], ecoQ] (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Jul 28 2011 *)
