COMMENTS

This is to A215405 as 2nd largest prime factor is to largest (greatest) prime factor. Technically, the prime numbers are "1almost prime."

FORMULA

a(n) = A087039(A101695(n)).


EXAMPLE

a(2) = 2 because the 2nd number that is a product of exactly 2 primes
(semiprime) is 6 = 2*3, so 2 is the 2nd largest of those two prime factors.
a(4) = 2 because the 4th number that is a product of exactly 4 primes is 40 = 2*2*2*5, so 2 is the 2nd largest of those two distinct prime factors {2,5}. This requires clarity in "distinct prime factors" versus merely "prime factors."
a(87) = 3 because the 87th number that is a product of 87 primes is 5048474222710691433572990976 = 2^84 3^2 29, and 3 is the 2nd largest prime factor.
