COMMENTS

Numbers that are not a sum of distinct Mersenne exponents (A000043). - Vladeta Jovovic, Jan 01 2003

Because there is a large gap between the 31st and 32nd Mersenne exponents, all n between 704338 and 756839 are in this sequence. - T. D. Noe, Oct 12 2006

A000203(A180162(a(n))) = 6^a(n), for n>1. - Walter Kehowski, Aug 16 2010

Using all known Mersenne exponents, there are exactly 52935 terms in this sequence. When a new Mersenne prime (with exponent q) is found, there will be no new terms if the sum of the previous Mersenne exponents (A109472) is greater than q - 22.

EXAMPLE

a(2)=4 because no positive integer value of x can satisfy sigma(x)=2^4=16.
