 A001222 Number of prime divisors of n counted with multiplicity (also called bigomega(n) or Omega(n)). (Formerly M0094 N0031) 1391

%N Number of prime divisors of n counted with multiplicity (also called bigomega(n) or Omega(n)).

%C Maximal number of terms in any factorization of n.

%C Number of prime powers (not including 1) that divide n.

%C Sum of exponents in prime-power factorization of n. - _Daniel Forgues_, Mar 29 2009

%C Sum_{d|n} 2^(-A001221(d) - a(n/d)) = Sum_{d|n} 2^(-a(d) - A001221(n/d)) = 1 (see Dressler and van de Lune link). - _Michel Marcus_, Dec 18 2012

%C Row sums in A067255. - _Reinhard Zumkeller_, Jun 11 2013

%C Conjecture: Let f(n) = (x+y)^a(n), and g(n) = x^a(n), and h(n) = (x+y)^A046660(n) * y^A001221(n) with x, y complex numbers and 0^0 = 1. Then f(n) = Sum_{d|n} g(d)*h(n/d). This is proved for x = 1-y (see Dressler and van de Lune link). - _Werner Schulte_, Feb 10 2018
