COMMENTS

So called because 714 is Babe Ruth's lifetime home run record, Hank Aaron's 715th home run broke this record and 714 and 715 have the same sum of prime divisors, taken with multiplicity.
An infinite number of terms would follow from A175513 and the assumption of Schinzel's Hypothesis H.  Hans Havermann, Dec 15 2010
A 3109digit term determined by Jens Kruse Andersen is currently the largestknown.  Hans Havermann, Dec 21 2010.
The sum of this sequence's reciprocals is 0.42069...  Hans Havermann, Dec 21 2010
Both 417162 and 417163 are in the sequence. Hence these two numbers along with 417164 constitute a RuthAaron "triplet". The smallest member of the next triplet is 6913943284.  Hans Havermann, Dec 01 2010, Dec 13 2010
The number of terms <= x is at most O(x (loglog x)^4 / (log x)^2) (Pomerance 1999/2002).  Tomohiro Yamada, Apr 22 2017

EXAMPLE

7129199 (7*11^2*19*443, with 7129200 = 2^4*3*5^2*13*457) is in this sequence because 7+11+11+19+443 = 2+2+2+2+3+5+5+13+457.

s[nr]:=sum(ifactors(n)[2, u][1]*ifactors(n)[2, u][2], u=1..g):
for j from n+1 to 1000000 do nr:=(nr+1) mod 2: g:=nops(ifactors(j)[2]):
s[nr]:=sum(ifactors(j)[2, u][1]*ifactors(j)[2, u][2], u=1..g):
if (s[0]=s[1]) then anzahl):=anzahl+1: print(anzahl, j1, j, s[0]): end if:
