Lexicographically earliest sequence of distinct positive integers such that a(n) is the least novel multiple of m, the product of all primes q < gpf(a(n2)*a(n1)) which do not divide a(n2)*a(n1); a(1) = 1, a(2) = 2.

COMMENTS

It follows from the definition that the sequence is infinite.
Let r(n) = a(n2)*a(n1)).
If rad(r(n)) is a primorial, then every prime q < gpf(r(n)) divides r(n), so m = 1, the empty product, and a(n) = u, the smallest missing number in the sequence so far.
If rad(r(n)) is not a primorial, then m > 1, and significant spikes can occur in scatterplot when there are multiple primes < gpf(r(n)) which do not divide r(n) (e.g., a(12) = 105, a(15) = 385, a(21) = 15015).
The only way a prime can occur is as u.
The sequence is a permutation of the positive integers since no number appears more than once and m = 1 eventually introduces any number not already placed consequent to terms arising from m > 1.

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 4, a(5) = 5, and 3 is the only prime < 5 which does not divide 20, therefore m = 3 and a(6) = 6 since 3 has occurred once already.
a(10) = 8, a(11) = 11 and the product of all primes < 11 which do not divide 8*11 = 88 is 3*5*7 = 105, which has not occurred earlier, so a(12) = 105.
