COMMENTS

From Rémy Sigrist, Jun 03 2017: (Start)

This sequence is a permutation of the composite numbers (A002808).

a(p) = 2*p for any prime p.

a(2^k) = 2^(k+1) for any n > 0.

For any prime p and n >= 0, a^n(p)/p is the (n+1)-th p-smooth number (where a^n denotes the n-th iterate of a).

a(n) <= 2*n for any n > 1 (as Lpf(2*n) = Lpf(n)).

See also A287932 for the least prime factor equivalent.
