Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

This is to primorial (A002110) as anti-prime (A092680) is to prime (A000040). Max Alekseyev points out that every element of A066466, except 4, must be of the form 3*2^k such that 3*2^(k+1)-1, 3*2^(k+1)+1 are twin primes. There no such new k+1 (i.e., except known 1,2,6,18) below 1000. In other words, 3*2^n - 1, 3*2^n + 1 are twin primes for n=1,2,6,18. According to these tables: http://web.archive.org/web/20161028080239/http://www.prothsearch.net/riesel.html http://web.archive.org/web/20161028021640/http://www.prothsearch.net/riesel2.html there are no other such n up to 1200000. Therefore the next element of A066466 (if it exists) is greater than 3*2^1200000 ~= 10^361236. Hence the next element of the anti-primorials (if it exists) is greater than 679477248 *3*2^1200000 ~= 679477248 * 10^361236 ~= 6 * 10^361245.

FORMULA

a(n) = PRODUCT[k = 1..n] A092680(k).

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 3.

a(2) = 3 * 6 = 18.

a(3) = 3 * 6 * 96 = 1728.

a(4) = 3 * 6 * 96 * 393216 = 679477248.
