A164829 a(1) = 2; a(n) for n > 1 is the smallest k > a(n-1) such that the harmonic mean of the divisors of k is one of the previous terms a(1), ..., a(n-1). 0

COMMENTS

The harmonic mean of the divisors of k is k*A000005(k)/A000203(k). a(n) for n > 1 is a harmonic number, a term of A001599. Is the sequence finite ?

Similar sequences are obtained for other values of a(1). E.g. a(1) = 5 gives 5, 140, 496, 164989440, 28103080287744; a(1) = 8 gives 8, 672, 183694492800, 7322605472000.

EXAMPLE

The smallest number with harmonic mean of divisors = 2 is 6, hence a(2) = 6.

The next number with harmonic mean of divisors in {2, 6} is 270, hence a(3) = 270.
