 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Includes all highly composite numbers (A002182) and least common multiples of 1 through n (A003418). It would be interesting to know: 1) whether or not all deeply composite numbers (A095848, which includes all members of A003418) also belong to this sequence; 2) if 72 is the only member of this sequence not also belonging to A002182 or A095848. 465585120 is the first member of A095848 that is not a member of this sequence. The first members that belong to neither A002182 nor A095848 are 72, 30240, 64864800 and 1470268800. - David Wasserman, Jun 28 2007 This sequence is also A096179 with duplicates deleted and sorted. Let F(n) be the number of the row of A096179 which has the first occurence of a(n) and M(n) = max{F(i),i <= n}. Then the following table indicates this connection.   n |1,2,3,4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17,  18,  19,  20, 21 a(n)|1,2,4,6,12,24,36,48,60,72,120,180,240,360,420,720,840,1260,1680,2520,5040 F(n)|1,2,4,3, 4, 8,18,16, 5, 9,  8, 18, 16,  9,  7, 16, 15,  21,  16,   9, 16 M(n)|1,2,4,4, 4, 8,18,18,18,18, 18, 18, 18, 18, 18, 18, 18,  21,  21,  21, 21 - Peter Luschny, Dec 29 2010 LINKS M.
