COMMENTS

Let PF_p(n) be the highest power of p dividing n. Examples are PF_2(n) = A006519(n), PF_3(n) = A038500(n) and PF_5(n) = 5^A112765(n) for the cases p = 2, 3, and 5.

Multi-indexed PF_(p1,p2,...)(n) are defined as the products PF_(p1)(n)*PF_(p2)(n)*...

For each n, we define an auxiliary sequence b(k) starting at b(0) = 2^n by b(k+1) = A034448(b(k))/PF_(2,3,5)(A034448(b(k)), that is, repeated removal of all powers of 2, 3 and 5 from the unitary sigma value. b(k) terminates at some k with b(k)=1. In addition there is an auxiliary parallel sequence c(k) defined by c(0)=2^n and recursively c(k+1) = c(k)*PF_(3,5)(A034448(b(k)))/A006519(A034448(b(k))), reducing 2^n by the powers of 2 which are divided out of the sequence b.

The sequence is defined by a(n) = c(k), the auxiliary sequence c at the point where b terminates.

All values of the sequence a(n) are 5-smooth, i.e., members of A051037.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..32.

EXAMPLE

n=5

b(n) : 2^5 -> 11 -> 1

c(n) : 2^5 -> 2^5*3 -> 2^3*3^2

So a(5) = c(2) = 2^3*3^2 = 72.

MAPLE

PF := proc(n, p) local nshf, a ; a := 1; nshf := n ; while (nshf mod p ) = 0 do nshf := nshf/p ; a := a*p ; od: a ; end:

A146891 := proc(n) local b, a, k, t ;

    b := [2^n] ;

    while op(-1, b) <> 1 do

        t := A034448(op(-1, b)) ;

        b := [op(b), t/A006519(t)/ A038500(t)/PF(t, 5) ] ;

    od:

    a := 2^n ;

    for k from 2 to nops(b) do

        t := A034448(op(k-1, b)) ;

        a := a/ A006519(t) *A038500(t)*PF(t, 5) ;

     od:

     a ;
