COMMENTS

n*a(n) is the number of complex multiplications needed for the fast Fourier transform of n numbers, writing n = r1 * r2 where r1 is a prime.

FORMULA

a(n) = sum ( a_i * (p_i - 1) ) where n = product ( p_i^a_i ) is the canonical factorization of n.

a(n) = min(A001222(x): A000005(x)=n).

a(n) = row sums of A138618 - row products of A138618. [Mats Granvik, May 23 2013]

EXAMPLE

a(18) = 5 since 18 = 2*3^2, a(18) = 1*(2-1) + 2*(3-1) = 5.

MAPLE

A059975 := proc(n)

        local a, pf, p, e ;

        a := 0 ;

        for pf in ifactors(n)[2] do

                p := op(1, pf) ;

                e := op(2, pf) ;

                a := a+e*(p-1) ;

        end do:

        a ;
