%N a(n) = largest prime <= n/2.
%C Also largest prime factor of any composite <= n. E.g., a(15) = 7 since 7 is the largest prime factor of {4,6,8,9,10,12,14,15}, the composites <= 15.
%C Also largest prime dividing A025527(n) = n!/lcm[1,...,n]. [Comment from _Ray Chandler_, Apr 26 2007: Primes > n/2 don't appear as factors of A025527(n) since they appear once in n! and again in the denominator lcm[1,...,n]. Primes <= n/2 appear more times in the numerator than the denominator so they appear in the fraction.]
%C a(n) is the largest prime factor whose exponent in the factorization of n! is greater than 1.  _Michel Marcus_, Nov 11 2018
