COMMENTS

This sequence is somewhat analogous to the smallest prime factor of n (A020639). However, each natural number has only one ludic factor, because once it is crossed off in the k-th step of the sieve process, it is not a member of the terms considered in the (k+1)-th step.

On the other hand, by iteratively invoking A302032 it is possible to factor n to its constituent "Ludic factors", with each natural number having a unique such decomposition, analogous to prime factorization of n. See comments and examples given in A302032. - Antti Karttunen, Apr 08 2018

FORMULA

From Antti Karttunen, Sep 11 2016: (Start)

a(n) = A003309(1+A260738(n)).

For all n >= 1, a(A276347(n)) = A020639(A276347(n)).

(End).

PROG

(Scheme) (define (A272565 n) (A003309 (+ 1 (A260738 n)))) ;; Antti Karttunen, Sep 11 2016
