A sequence of sorted primes p_1 = 2, p_2 = 3, p_3 = 5, p_4 =7, p_5 < ... < p_m such that, for i >= 5, (p_i + 1)/2 divides the product p_1*p_2*...*p_(i1) of the earlier primes and each prime factor of (p_i1)/2 is a prime factor of the product p_1*p_2*...*p_(i1).

COMMENTS

The sequence was used, together with A358717 and A358719, by Ferrari and Sillari (Preprint2022) to prove that there are at least three solutions n to phi(n+k) = 2*phi(n) for all even k <= 4*10^58.
The sequence is a slight modification of A358717.
