COMMENTS

Old name: Greatest number strictly less than n with same factorization pattern.
Here we call a number "comparable" if it is in the specified neighborhood of n. For n > 1, A064802(n) is the next larger comparable number. If n is not a power of 2, the ratio of a(n) to n is the ratio of successive primes.

EXAMPLE

a(18)=12 because 18=2*3*3 and next smaller comparable factorization is 2*2*3=12 (A127185(18,12) = 2).
