COMMENTS

Does a(n) = the product of primes less than or equal to prime(n+1) = A002110(n+1)? Answer from Lambert Klasen (Lambert.Klasen(AT)gmx.net), Sep 14 2005: No, this is not true.

Note that sigma(k^k) = prod (p^(k r + 1) - 1)/(p - 1). - Mitch Harris, Sep 14 2005

I have proved to my own satisfaction that for n >= 4, A073087(n) = p#, where p is the smallest prime satisfying p#/phi(p#) >= n. See link. - David W. Wilson, Sep 14 2005
