Least prime factor of n
From OeisWiki
n |
By convention, 1 is given as its own least prime factor, but of course this has met with objections. By disallowing 1 as a prime number, we can then say that each prime number is its own least and greatest prime factor. However, in the OEIS, it is reasonable to believe that some users will look up the sequence of least prime factors as “1, 2, 3, 2, 5, 2, 7, 2, 3, 2 ” (give or take a few terms), and that should deliver a result.
