%N Prime numbers that when multiplied in order yield the sequence of colossally abundant numbers A004490.

%C The Mathematica program presents a very fast method of computing the factors of colossally abundant numbers. The 100th number has a sigma(n)/n ratio of 10.5681.

%C This calculation assumes that the ratio of consecutive colossally abundant numbers is always prime, which is implied by a conjecture mentioned in Lagarias' paper.

%C The ratio of consecutive colossally abundant numbers is prime for at least the first 10^7 terms. The (10^7)-th term is a 77908696-digit number which has a sigma(n)/n value of 33.849.

%C Alaoglu and Erdős's paper proves that the quotient of two consecutive colossally abundant numbers is either a prime or the product of two distinct primes.
