Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

%N a(n) is the number of arithmetic progressions of positive integers, strictly increasing with sum n.

%C We need to find the number of pairs of positive integers (b, w) so that there is a positive integer m such that m*b + m*(m-1)*w/2 = n. - _Petros Hadjicostas_, Sep 27 2019

%F Conjecture: a(n) = 1 + Sum_{m|n, m odd > 1} floor(2 * (n - m)/(m* (m - 1))) + Sum_{m|n} floor((n - m * (5 - (-1)^(n/m))/2 + m^2 * (1 - (-1)^(n/m)))/(2*m * (2*m - 1))). - _Petros Hadjicostas_, Sep 27 2019

%F G.f.: x/(1-x) + Sum_{k >= 2} x^t(k)/(x^t(k) - x^t(k-1) - x^k + 1) = x/(1-x) + Sum_{k >= 2} x^t(k)/((1 - x^k) * (1 - x^t(k-1))), where t(k) = k*(k+1)/2 = A000217(k) is the k-th triangular number [_Graeme McRae_]. - _Petros Hadjicostas_, Sep 29 2019

%e a(6) = 4 because we have the following strictly increasing arithmetic progressions of positive integers adding up to n = 6: 6, 1+5, 2+4, and 1+2+3. - _Petros Hadjicostas_, Sep 27 2019
