%e a(1) = 2 because the product over the empty set is defined here as 1. So we have a(1) = number of divisors of (1+1).

%e For n = 6 the maximum number of divisors occurs when S = 1*3*4*5 + 2*6 = 72. (This 12-divisor solution is not unique.) So a(6) is the number of positive divisors of 72, which is 12.

%e a(7) = 20 because of the partition 3*4 + 2*5*6*7 = 432, which has 20 divisors (and no other partition yields more).
