COMMENTS

"Least" is required in the definition, otherwise a(14) could be either 2*77636318760 or 5*77636318760, which have the same abundancy. It appears that only a(14) has this property.  T. D. Noe, Jan 24 2010
No other terms through a(800000) have the above property.  Jon E. Schoenfield, Mar 02 2019

FORMULA

a(n) = product of the first n terms of A137826.  T. D. Noe, Jan 24 2010


EXAMPLE

a(4) = 2*2*3*5 = 60 since it has four factors and its abundancy is 2.8, which is greater than that of any other number with four factors; e.g., 2*2*2*2=16, 2*2*2*3=24, 2*2*3*3=36, and 2*3*5*7=210 have abundancies 1.9375, 2.5, 2.52777..., and 2.7428571..., respectively.
