A137826 Least prime number that produces the highest abundancy number when multiplied by the product of all previous n-1 terms. 2

COMMENTS

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

EXAMPLE

a(4)=2 since the product a(1)*a(2)*a(3) is 2*3*5=30, and

30*2 =  60 has abundancy 2.8, whereas

30*3 =  90 has abundancy 2.6,

30*5 = 150 has abundancy 2.48,

30*7 = 210 has abundancy 2.7428571..., etc.
