FORMULA
Conjecture: Limit_{N->oo} (Sum_{n=1..N} log(a(n))) / (Sum_{n=1..N} prime(n)) = 1/e (A068985). - Alain Rocchelli, Nov 13 2023
EXAMPLE
a(4)=1: 2*3*5*7 = 210 = 14*15, so we can take x=14, y=15, with difference of 1.
Also: n=3: 2*3-5=1; n=4: 3*5-2*7=1; n=5: 5*11-2*3*7=13; n=6: 2*7*13-3*5*11=17; n=7: 5*11*13-2*3*7*17=1; n=8: 3*5*11*19-2*7*13*17=41
