COMMENTS

According to the linked MathWorld page, a proper factor can be equal to 1, as is the case for many terms of this sequence, whereas a proper divisor must be larger than 1 (which is not clearly stated on the page defining the latter). - M. F. Hasler, Apr 03 2017

FORMULA

a(n) = A053598(A053598(n))

a(n) = A032742(A032742(n)); A117357(n) = A020639(a(n)); A117358(n) = A032742(a(n)) = a(n) / A117357(n); a(A037143(n)) = 1, a(A033942(n)) > 1. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Mar 10 2006
