COMMENTS

See A006039 for a definition and list of primitive nondeficient numbers.

The first prime being 2, the prime(1)-smooth numbers are the powers of 2, which are all deficient. So a(1) is undefined, and the sequence offset is 2.

Omitting the initial "6" gives us the largest prime(n)-smooth primitive abundant numbers (based on their A071395 definition). Using the variant definition of primitive abundant from A091191, the equivalent sequence starts 18, 30, 2205, 12705, 117234117, ... .

If m is a prime(n)-smooth primitive nondeficient number, the odd part of m divides a member of one of the first (n - 1) finite sets described in the Dickson reference and the even part of m is less than 2^A035100(n). This provides an upper bound for such numbers, meaning there is a largest prime(n)-smooth primitive nondeficient number for all n >= 2.

FORMULA

a(n) = Max_{m <= n, k >= 1} A338133(m, k).

a(n) = max( {m in A006039 : A006530(m) <= A000040(n)} ).

EXAMPLE

Initial terms, showing factorization:

   n          a(n)

   2             6 = 2 * 3,

   3            20 = 2^2 * 5,

   4          2205 = 3^2 * 5 * 7^2,

   5         12705 = 3 * 5 * 7 * 11^2,

   6     117234117 = 3^2 * 7^2 * 11^2 * 13^3,

   7   42840834309 = 3^4 * 7^2 * 13^3 * 17^3,

   ...

The largest primitive nondeficient (and primitive abundant) number that has prime(12) = 37 as largest prime factor is 29504726357465429322218597476548828125, which is one digit shorter than the largest 31-smooth primitive nondeficient (and primitive abundant) number, 292210459765634328314801626540200511773. So a(12) = a(11).

CROSSREFS
