 A127181 a(1)=a(2)=1. a(n) = smallest possible (product of b(k)'s + product of c(k)'s), where the sequence's terms a(1) through a(n-1) are partitioned somehow into {b(k)} and {c(k)}. 1

 OFFSET 1,3 COMMENTS Every term of the sequence is coprime to every other term. LINKS EXAMPLE By partitioning (a(1),a(2),...a(7)) = (1,1,2,3,5,11,37) into {b(k)} and {c(k)} so that {b(k)} = (1,2,5,11) and {c(k)} = (1,3,37), then (product of b(k)'s + product of c(k)'s) is minimized. Therefore a(8) = 1*2*5*11 + 1*3*37 = 221.
