 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS a(n) = 1 if in prime(n+1)-1 no new prime divisor or new power of a prime appear, like LCM[{1, 2, 4, 6, 10, 12, 16, 22}]= LCM[{1, 2, 4, 6, 10, 12, 16, 22, 28}]. a(n) > 1 if in prime(n+1)-1 new prime divisor(s) or new power(s) of a prime arise, like in A058254(15) compared with A058254(14), where the new prime divisor is 23 only, so a(14)=23. Such sites of increase do not correspond to the natural order of primes and prime-powers like in A054451.
