COMMENTS

This is the inverse Moebius transform of A101637. If we take the prime factorization of n = (p1^e1)*(p2^e2)* ... * (pj^ej) then a(n) = {k: ek>=4} + ((j1)/2)*{k: ek>=3} + C({k: ek>=2},2) + C(j,4). The first term is the number of distinct 4th powers of primes in the factors of n (the first way of finding a 4almost prime). The second term is the number of distinct cubes of primes, each of which can be multiplied by any of the other distinct primes, halved to avoid doublecounts (the second way of finding a 4almost prime). The third term is the number of distinct pairs of squares of primes in the factors of n (the third way of finding a 4almost prime). The 4th term is the number of distinct products of 4 distinct primes, which is the number of combinations of j primes in the factors of n taken 4 at a time, A000332(j), (the 4th way of finding a 4almost prime).

EXAMPLE

a(96) = 2 because 96 = 16 * 6 hence divisible by the 4almost prime 16 and also 96 = 24 * 4 hence divisible by the 4almost prime 24.
