COMMENTS

Triangle A123706 is the matrix inverse of triangle A010766, where A010766(n,k) = [n/k]. a(n) = 4 when n is in A123710. a(n) = 8 when n is in A123711. a(n) = 16 when n is in A123712.

FORMULA

a(n) = 2^(m+1)  1 when n is the product of m distinct odd primes. [Corrected by M. F. Hasler, Feb 13 2012]
For any k>1, a(n)=2^k if, and only if, n is a nonsquarefree number with A001221(n) = k1 (= omega(n), number of distinct prime factors), with the only exception of a(n=6)=2^2.  M. F. Hasler, Feb 12 2012
A123709(n) = 1 + #{ k in 1..n1  Moebius(n,k+1) <> Moebius(n,k) }, where Moebius(n,k)={moebius(n/k) if n=0 (mod k), 0 else}, cf. link to message by P. Luschny.  M. F. Hasler, Feb 13 2012


EXAMPLE

a(n) = 3 when n is an odd prime.
a(n) = 7 when n is the product of two different odd primes. [Corrected by M. F. Hasler, Feb 13 2012]
a(n) = 15 when n is the product of three different odd primes. [Corrected by M. F. Hasler, Feb 13 2012]
