Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

Amiram Eldar, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000

FORMULA

a(n) = lcm{i=1..n+1} (prime(i)-1) / lcm{i=1..n} (prime(i)-1).

EXAMPLE

a(n) = 1 if in prime(n+1)-1 no new prime divisor or new power of a prime appear, like LCM[{1, 2, 4, 6, 10, 12, 16, 22}]= LCM[{1, 2, 4, 6, 10, 12, 16, 22, 28}].

a(n) > 1 if in prime(n+1)-1 new prime divisor(s) or new power(s) of a prime arise, like in A058254(15) compared with A058254(14), where the new prime divisor is 23 only, so a(14)=23. Such sites of increase do not correspond to the natural order of primes and prime-powers like in A054451.
