FORMULA

For n>2, m=p^3*q (p,q = primes), a(n) = Sum_{d|m}, (n-1)^(bigomega(d)-omega(d)) = Sum_{d|m}, (n-1)^(A001222(d)-A001221(d))). - Jaroslav Krizek, Sep 24 2009

For n>1, a(n) = 2*(n^2-n+2); first diagonal of [A154685]. - Vincenzo Librandi, Nov 24 2010

G.f.: 2*x*(1+x-x^2+x^3)/(1-x)^3. - Colin Barker, Jan 20 2012
