COMMENTS

A072044(n)/a(n) -> (Pi^2)/6 (Leonhard Euler, 1748).

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..16.

EXAMPLE

For the first 3 primes: 2,3,5: (2^2/(2^2-1))*(3^2/(3^2-1))*(5^2/(5^2-1)) = (4/3)*(9/8)*(25/24) = (4*9*25)/(3*8*24) = 25/16, therefore a(3)=16;

A072044(9)/a(9)=718188003533/440301256704=1.631128671.
