 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Sigma_k(n) > sigma_k(m) for all m < n (where the function sigma_k(n) is the sum of the k-th powers of all divisors of n) for all or almost all negative values of k. LINKS T. D. Noe, Table of n, a(n) for n=1..448 (terms < 10^100) Wikipedia, Table of divisors. FORMULA For n>=4, a(n) is the smallest integer > a(n-1) such that the list of its divisors precedes the list of a(n-1)'s divisors in lexicographic order. EXAMPLE The list of the divisors of a(6)=24, {1,2,3,4,6,8,12,24}, lexicographically precedes the list for the previous term in the sequence (in this case, {1,2,3,4,6,12}, the list for a(5)=12). Therefore 24 belongs in the sequence. 36 does not satisfy this requirement, as {1,2,3,4,6,9 . . .} comes after {1,2,3,4,6,8 . . .} in lexicographic order. Since 8^k/9^k increases without limit as k decreases, sigma(36)_k < sigma(24)_k for almost all negative values of k; therefore 36 does not belong in the sequence. CROSSREFS Cf. A004394, A095849.
