Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

COMMENTS

a(n) = n - k where k is the sum of the divisors of n excluding 1 and n itself. The initial value for n is 2.

Evidently a(n) = n iff n is prime (A000040). Moreover a(n) = 1 iff n is perfect (A000396).

A value of 0 indicates a quasiperfect number, although no such number is known. - Felix Fröhlich, Jul 14 2014

FORMULA

a(n) = (2*n+1)-A000203(n). - Felix Fröhlich, Jul 14 2014

EXAMPLE

The divisors of 10 are 1, 2, 5 and 10, so a(10) = 10 - (2 + 5) = 3.
