%N Ruth-Aaron numbers (2): sum of prime divisors of n = sum of prime divisors of n+1 (both taken with multiplicity).

%C So called because 714 is Babe Ruth's lifetime home run record, Hank Aaron's 715th home run broke this record and 714 and 715 have the same sum of prime divisors, taken with multiplicity.

%C An infinite number of terms would follow from A175513 and the assumption of Schinzel's Hypothesis H. - _Hans Havermann_, Dec 15 2010

%C A 3109-digit term determined by _Jens Kruse Andersen_ is currently the largest-known. - _Hans Havermann_, Dec 21 2010

%C The sum of this sequence's reciprocals is 0.42069... - _Hans Havermann_, Dec 21 2010

%C Both 417162 and 417163 are in the sequence. Hence these two numbers along with 417164 constitute a Ruth-Aaron "triple". The smallest member of the next triple is 6913943284. - _Hans Havermann_, Dec 01 2010, Dec 13 2010

%C The number of terms <= x is at most O(x (loglog x)^4 / (log x)^2) (Pomerance 1999/2002). - _Tomohiro Yamada_, Apr 22 2017
