A073675


Rearrangement of natural numbers such that a(n) is the smallest proper divisor of n not included earlier but if no such divisor exists then a(n) is the smallest proper multiple of n not included earlier, subject always to the condition that a(n) is not equal to n.

COMMENTS

The parity of the sequence is E,D,E,E,E,D,E,E,E,D,E,E,E,D,E,E,E,D,E,E,E,D,..., that is, an D followed by three E's from the second term onwards.
Closely related to A035263: if A035263(n) = 1, a(n) = 2n; otherwise a(n)=n/2.  Franklin T. AdamsWatters, Feb 02 2006
This permutation is selfinverse. This is the case r=2 of sequences where a(n)=floor(n/r) if floor(n/r)>0 and not already in the sequence, a(n) = floor(n*r) otherwise. All such sequences (for r>=1) are permutations of the natural numbers.  Franklin T. AdamsWatters, Feb 06 2006

FORMULA

If valuation(n,2) is even, a(n) = 2n; otherwise a(n)=n/2, where valuation(n,2) = A007814(n) is the exponent of the highest power of 2 dividing n.  Franklin T. AdamsWatters, Feb 06 2006, Jul 31 2009
a(k*2^m) = k*2^(m+(1)^m), m >= 0, odd k >= 1.  Carl R. White, Aug 23 2010


MAPLE

a:= proc(n) local i, m; m:=n;
for i from 0 while irem(m, 2, 'r')=0 do m:=r od;
m*2^`if`(irem(i, 2)=1, i1, i+1)
end:
seq(a(n), n=1..80); # Alois P. Heinz, Feb 10 2014


MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := Module[{i, m = n}, For[i = 0, {q, r} = QuotientRemainder[m, 2]; r == 0, i++, m = q]; m*2^If[Mod[i, 2] == 1, i1, i+1]]; Table[a[n], {n, 1, 80}] (* JeanFrançois Alcover, Jun 10 2015, after Alois P. Heinz *)

(PARI) a(n) = if (valuation(n, 2) % 2, n/2, 2*n); \\ Michel Marcus, Mar 17 2018
