Parallels A000005 up to a(46).

Sum_{k>=1} x^k/(1-x^k) = sum_{k>=1} tau(k)*x^k. Choosing x = 1/10 gives the result. - Amarnath Murthy, Oct 21 2002

FORMULA

From Eric Desbiaux, Mar 11 2009: (Start)

Equals Sum_{k >= 1}, 1/((2^k*5^k)-1).

Equals Sum_{k >= 1}, (1/2^k)*(1/5^k)/(1-((1/2^k)*(1/5^k))).

Sum_{k >= 1},1/(5^k) = 1/4.

Sum_{k >= 1},1/(2^k) = 1.

Sum_{k >= 1},(1/5^k)/(1-((1/2^k)*(1/5^k))) = 0.2726344339156...

Sum_{k >= 1},(1/2^k)/(1-((1/2^k)*(1/5^k))) = 1.0582125127815...

Sum_{k >= 1}, 1/(1-((1/2^k)*(1/5^k))) - 1 = A073668.

(End)
