COMMENTS

lim inf a(n) >= 2 by Størmer's theorem. Is lim a(n) = infinity? It would be very surprising if this was false, since then there is some k such that n and n+k are both 5smooth for infinitely many n.  Charles R Greathouse IV, Nov 28 2012
A085152 gives all n's for which a(n) = 1. ThueSiegelRoth theorem gives lim a(n) = infinity. With the aid of lower bounds for linear forms in logarithms, Tijdeman showed that a(n+1)a(n) > a(n)/(log a(n))^C for some effectively computable constant C.  Tomohiro Yamada, Apr 15 2017
