 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS a[n] := numerator of cfenc[n]. cfenc[n] := number given by interpreting as a continued fraction expansion (indexed from 1) the sequence whose i-th entry is one plus the exponent on the i-th prime factor of n (fix cfenc[1]=1). a[2^k] = cfenc[2^k] = k+1. a[A000040[n]] = A000045[n+2].
