COMMENTS

Since the prime factorization of 1 is the empty product (i.e., the multiplicative identity, 1), it follows that the prime signature of 1 is the empty multiset { }. (Cf. http://oeis.org/wiki/Prime_signature)

MathWorld wrongly defines the prime signature of 1 as {1}, which is actually the prime signature of primes.

The sequences A025487, A036035, A046523 consider the prime signatures of 1 and 2 to be distinct, implying { } for 1 and {1} for 2.

Since the prime signature of n is a partition of Omega(n), also true for Omega(1) = 0, the order of exponents is only a matter of convention (using reverse sorted lists of exponents would create a different sequence).

Here the multisets of nonzero exponents are sorted in increasing order; it is slightly more common to order them, as the parts of partitions, in decreasing order. This yields A212171. - M. F. Hasler, Oct 12 2018

EXAMPLE

The table starts:

  n : prime signature of n  (factorization of n)

  1 : {},                   (empty product)

  2 : {1},                  (2^1)

  3 : {1},                  (3^1)

  4 : {2},                  (2^2)

  5 : {1},                  (5^1)

  6 : {1, 1},               (2^1 * 3^1)

  7 : {1},                  (5^1)

  8 : {3},                  (2^3)

  9 : {2},                  (3^2)

  10 : {1, 1},              (2^1 * 5^1)

  11 : {1},                 (11^1)

  12 : {1, 2},              (2^2 * 3^1, but exponents are sorted increasingly)

  etc.
