COMMENTS

These are also the numbers for which the Kempner function A002034 is composite. Their density approaches zero as they go to infinity.  Jud McCranie, Dec 08 2001
n is a member if and only if P(n) < A002034(n). The members are the exceptions to the rule that P(n) = A002034(n) for almost all n (Erdos and Kastanas 1994, Ivic 2004).  Jonathan Sondow, Jan 10 2005
Same as numbers n such that e  m/n < 1/(P(n)+1)! for some integer m.  Jonathan Sondow, Dec 29 2007

EXAMPLE

12 is in the sequence since 3 is the largest prime factor of 12, but 12 is not a factor of 3!=6.
