COMMENTS

This sequence is complete only as far as the last term given, for the eventual fate of the aliquot sequence generated by 276 is not (yet) known

FORMULA

Define s(i)=sigma(i)-i=A000203(i)-i. Then if the aliquot sequence obtained by repeatedly applying the mapping i->s(i) terminates by encountering the prime 3 as a member of its trajectory, i is included in this sequence

EXAMPLE

a(5)=15 because the fifth integer whose aliquot sequence terminates by encountering the prime 3 as a member of its trajectory is 15. The complete aliquot sequence generated by iterating the proper divisors of 15 is 15->9->4->3->1->0

MATHEMATICA

s[n_] := DivisorSigma[1, n] - n; g[n_] := If[n > 0, s[n], 0]; Trajectory[n_] := Most[NestWhileList[g, n, UnsameQ, All]]; Select[Range[275], MemberQ[Trajectory[ # ], 3] &]
