 OFFSET 2,2 COMMENTS Find each node's predecessors in aliquot sequences and choose the largest predecessor. Climb the aliquot trees on shortest paths (see A135245 = Climb the aliquot trees on thickest branches). The sequence starts at offset 2, since all primes satisfy sigma(n)-n = 1. - Michel Marcus, Nov 11 2014 LINKS Ophir Spector, Table of n, a(n) for n = 2..150 W. Creyaufmueller, Aliquot sequences J. O.
