COMMENTS

For p = prime(n), Boyd defines J_p to be the set of numbers k such that p divides A001008(k). This sequence gives the largest element of J_p. The smallest element of J_p is given by A072984. The size of J_p is given by A092103.

a(24)-a(26) = [704942, 73068455829392952709, 1093588833695991475]. - Max Alekseyev, Feb 19 2016
