%N Smallest abundant number (sigma(x) > 2x) which is not divisible by any of the first n primes.

%C a(n) exists for every n, since the sum of the inverses of the primes is infinite.

%C From _Fred Schneider_, Sep 20 2006; edited by _Danny Rorabaugh_, Nov 26 2018: (Start)

%C Heuristic: Add the squares of several successive primes and then add successive primes until the number is abundant.

%C a(2) = 5^2 * 7 * 11 * 13 * 17 * 19 * 23 * 29;

%C a(3) = 7^2 * 11^2 * 13 * 17 * ... * 61 * 67;

%C a(4) = 11^2 * 13^2 * 17 * 19 * ... * 131 * 137;

%C a(5) = 13^2 * 17^2 * 19 * 23 * ... * 223 * 227. (End)

%C a(6) = 17^2 * 19^2 * 23^2 * 29 * 31 * ... * 347 * 349;

%C a(7) = 19^2 * 23^2 * 29^2 * 31 * 37 * ... * 491 * 499 (both coming from D. Iannucci paper). - _Michel Marcus_, May 01 2013

%C The known terms of this sequence provide Egyptian decompositions of unity in which all the denominators lack the first n primes, as follows: Every term listed in this sequence is a semiperfect number, which means that a subset of its divisors add up to the number itself. The decomposition 1 = 1/a + 1/b + ... + 1/m, where the denominators are a(n) divided by those divisors, is the desired decomposition. - _Javier Múgica_, Nov 15 2017

%C a(n) is the product of consecutive primes starting from prime(n+1) raised to nonincreasing powers. - _Jianing Song_, Apr 10 2021

%F Iannucci shows that log a(n) = (n log n)^(2 + o(1)). - _Charles R Greathouse IV_, Feb 16 2011

%e a(0) = 12, the first abundant number; a(1) = 945, the first odd abundant number; a(5) is the first abundant number not divisible by 2,3,5,7 or 11.
