Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A167790 a(n) is the index k of k-th prime p(k) in the smallest sum s(k)=2+3+...+p(k)=t*p(n) of first k primes where t is a true divisor and first occurrence of factor p(n) (n=1,2,3,...) 2

COMMENTS

It is conjectured that the sequence is infinite

If t is not restricted to nontrivial divisors, the sequence becomes A111287. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 17 2009

FORMULA

a(n) = min[2+3+...+p(k)/t], where the minimum is taken with respect to k, the denominator t > 1 is an integer divisor of numerator s(k)=2+3+...+p(k).

EXAMPLE

(1) s(5)=2+3+5+7+11=28=2^2*7=4*p(4) gives a(4)=5 as first occurrence of prime factor p(4)=7;

(2) s(8)=2+3+5+7+11+13+17+19=77=7*11=7*p(5) gives a(5)=8 as first occurrence of prime factor p(5)=11;

(3) s(422)=2+3+5+...+2917=570145= 5 * 101 * 1129=5645*p(26) gives a(26)=422 and demonstrates the numerical difficulties.
