a(n) is the index k of kth 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 occurence of factor p(n) (n=1,2,3,...)

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 occurence 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 occurence 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.
