COMMENTS

These are sometimes called the proper divisors (see A032741 for the usual meaning of that term)
a(n) = number of ordered factorizations of n into two factors, n = 2,3,... If n has the prime factorization n=Product p^e(j), j=1..r, the number of compositions of the vector (e(1), ..., e(r)) equals the number of ordered factorizations of n. Andrews (1998, page 59) gives a formula for the number of mcompositions of (e(1), ..., e(r)) which equals the number f(n,m) of ordered mfactorizations of n. But with m=2 the formula reduces to f(n,2)=d(n)2=a(n).  Augustine O. Munagi, Mar 31 2005
a(n) = 0 if and only if n is 1 or prime.  Jon Perry, Nov 08 2008
For n > 2: number of zeros in nth row of triangle A051778.  Reinhard Zumkeller, Dec 03 2014
a(n) = number of partitions of n in which largest and least parts occur exactly once and their difference is 2. Example: a(12) = 4 because we have [7,5], [5,4,3], [4,3,3,2], and [3,2,2,2,2,1]. In general, if d is a nontrivial divisor of n, then [d+1,{d}^(n/d2),d1] is a partition of n of the prescribed type.  Emeric Deutsch, Nov 03 2015

FORMULA

a(n) = A000005(n)2, n>=2 (with the divisor function d(n)=A000005(n)).
a(n) = d(n)2, where d(n) is the divisor function. E.g. a(12)=4 because 12 has 4 ordered factorizations into two factors: 2*6, 6*2, 3*4, 4*3.  Augustine O. Munagi, Mar 31 2005

EXAMPLE

a(12)=4 with the nontrivial divisors 2,3,4,6.
a(24) = 6 = card({{2,12},{3,8},{4,6},{6,4},{8,3},{12,2}}.  Peter Luschny, Nov 14 2011
