 A112888 Least semiprime of a cluster of just n semiprimes. 1

 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Clusters are sets composed of odd numbers. If we include even numbers then the sequence would start 4,9,33 and terminates because in any group of four consecutive numbers greater than 4, 4 is a divisor to at least one member leaving a quotient greater than 1. Any set of 9 consecutive odd numbers contain a multiple of 9, which not semiprime (unless it is equal to 9). Hence there are no 9 consecutive odd semiprimes. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..8. EXAMPLE a(8)=8129 because 8129=11*739, 8131=47*173, 8133=3*2711, 8135=5*1627, 8137=79*103, 8139=3*2713, 8141=7*1163, 8143=17*479.
