COMMENTS

Brilliant numbers, as defined by Peter Wallrodt, are numbers with two prime factors of the same length (in decimal notation). These numbers are generally used for cryptographic purposes and for testing the performance of prime factoring programs.
a(3n) will always be the cube of the greatest prime less than 10^n.
