The numbers contain the starred entries on pp. 187-190 of Nicolas. It is a subsequence of A002809 by selecting only elements of a set/property "G" (page 150). G contains all N such that a real, strictly positive rho exists such that for all strictly positive integers A we have l(A)-l(N) >= rho*log(A/N). The function l()=A008475() is defined on page 139. - R. J. Mathar, Mar 23 2012

These numbers were named superior l-composite numbers (nombres l-composes superieurs, the function l(n) is A002809) by Massias, in analogy to Ramanujan's superior highly composite numbers (A002201). Deléglise and Nicolas named these numbers l-superchampion numbers. They are used by Deléglise et al. in calculating values of Landau's function g(n) (A000793). - Amiram Eldar, Aug 23 2019
