%N Largest integer k < n such that any prime factor of k is also a prime factor of n.

%C The function a(n) complements Euler's phi-function: 1) a(n)+phi(n) = n if n is a power of a prime (actually, in A285710). 2) It seems also that a(n)+phi(n) >= n for "almost all numbers" (see A285709, A208815). 3) a(2n) = n+1 if and only if n is a Mersenne prime. 4) Lim a(n^k)/n^k =1 if n has at least two prime factors and k goes to infinity.

%C From _Michael De Vlieger_, Apr 26 2017: (Start)

%C In other words, largest integer k < n such that k | n^e with integer e >= 0.

%C Penultimate term of row n in A162306. (The last term of row n in A162306 is n.)

%C For prime p, a(p) = 1. More generally, for n with omega(n) = 1, that is, a prime power p^e with e > 0, a(p^e) = p^(e - 1).

%C For n with omega(n) > 1, a(n) does not divide n. If n = pq with q = p + 2, then p^2 < n though p^2 does not divide n, yet p^2 | n^e with e > 1. If n has more than 2 distinct prime divisors p, powers p^m of these divisors will appear in the range (1..n-1) such that p^m > n/lpf(n) (lpf(n) = A020639(n)). Since a(n) is the largest of these, a(n) is not a divisor of n.

%C If a(n) does not divide n, then a(n) appears last in row n of A272618.

%F Largest k < n with rad(kn) = rad(n), where rad = A007947.

%e a(10)=8 since 8 is the largest integer< 10 that can be written using only the primes 2 and 5. a(78)=72 since 72 is the largest number less than 78 that can be written using only the primes 2, 3 and 13. (78=2*3*13).
