%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.
