COMMENTS

More generally, if the equation a(x)*m=x has solutions, solutions are congruent to m: a(x)*7=x for x=7, 14, 21, 28, 49, 56, 63, 98, 112, ... . There are some composite values of m such that a(x)*m=x has solutions, as m=15. a(n) coincides with A009195(n) at many values of n, but not at n = 20, 30, 40, 42, 52, 60, 66, 68, 70, 78, 80, 84, 90, 100, ... . It seems also that for n large enough sum_{k=1..n} a(k) > n*log(n)*log(log(n)).

Similar (if not the same) coincidences and differences occur between A072995 and A050399. Sequence A072989 lists these indices. - M. F. Hasler, Feb 23 2014

FORMULA

For n>0, a(A003277(n)) = 1, a(2^n) = 2^(n-1), a(A065119(n)) = A065119(n)/3.

For n>1, a(A026383(n)) = A026383(n)/5.
