%N a(n) is number of solutions of the equation sigma(x)=10^n.

%C Conjecture: For n>2, a(n+1)>a(n).

%H Max Alekseyev, <a href="/A110078/b110078.txt">Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000</a>

%F a(n) = coefficient of x^n*y^n in Prod_p Sum_{u, v} x^u*y^v, where the product is taken over all primes p and the sum is taken over such u, v that 2^u*5^v = sigma(p^k) for some nonnegative integer k. - _Max Alekseyev_, Aug 08 2005

%e a(4)=2 because 8743 & 9481 are all solutions of the equation sigma(x)=10^4.
