COMMENTS

Rephrasing the Quet formula: Begin with 1. Then, if n + 1 is prime subtract 1 and multiply. If n+1 is not prime, multiply. Continue writing each product. Thus the sequence would begin 1, 2, 8, . . . . The first product is 1*(2  1), second is 1*(3  1), and third is 2*4.  Enoch Haga, May 06 2009

FORMULA

a(n) = phi(n!) = A000010(n!).
If n is composite, then a(n) = a(n1)*n. If n is prime, then a(n) = a(n1)*(n1).  Leroy Quet, May 24 2007
Under the Riemann Hypothesis, a(n) = n! / (e^gamma * log n) * (1 + O(log n/sqrt(n))).  Charles R Greathouse IV, May 12 2011
