COMMENTS

Iannucci, Moujie and Cohen examine perfect totient numbers: n such that a(n) = n.

FORMULA

a(1) = 0, a(n) = phi(n) + a(phi(n))

a(n) = A053478(n) - n. - Vladeta Jovovic, Jul 02 2004

Erdős & Subbarao prove that a(n) ~ phi(n) for almost all n. In particular, a(n) < n for almost all n. The proportion of numbers up to N for which a(n) > n is at most 1/log log log log N. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Mar 22 2012

EXAMPLE

a(100) = 71 because the iterations of phi (40, 16, 8, 4, 2, 1) sum to 71.

MATHEMATICA

nMax=100; a=Table[0, {nMax}]; Do[e=EulerPhi[n]; a[[n]]=e+a[[e]], {n, 2, nMax}]; a (* T. D. Noe *)

Table[Plus @@ FixedPointList[EulerPhi, n] - (n + 1), {n, 72}] (* Alonso del Arte, Jan 29 2007 *)
