%N Least number having the highest abundancy among numbers with exactly n prime factors (counted with multiplicity).

%C "Least" is required in the definition, otherwise a(14) could be either 2*77636318760 or 5*77636318760, which have the same abundancy. It appears that only a(14) has this property. - _T. D. Noe_, Jan 24 2010

%C No other terms through a(800000) have the above property. - _Jon E. Schoenfield_, Mar 02 2019

%F a(n) = product of the first n terms of A137826. - _T. D. Noe_, Jan 24 2010

%e a(4) = 2*2*3*5 = 60 since it has four factors and its abundancy is 2.8, which is greater than that of any other number with four factors; e.g., 2*2*2*2=16, 2*2*2*3=24, 2*2*3*3=36, and 2*3*5*7=210 have abundancies 1.9375, 2.5, 2.52777..., and 2.7428571..., respectively.
