COMMENTS

For any prime p, there are finitely many k such that k^21 has p as its largest prime factor.
For every prime p, is there some k where the greatest prime factor of k^21 is p? Answer from Artur Jasinski, Oct 22 2010: Yes.
As mentioned by Luca and Najman, this problem is closely related to the one in A002071.
The terms give an upper bound with a method for the simultaneous computation of logarithms of small primes, see the fxtbook link. [Joerg Arndt, Jul 03 2012]
