COMMENTS

A024816(n) is the sum of the non-divisors k of n for k=2,3,...,n-1.

It appears that (1) a(n) = A120444(n)+1 if and only if n is a prime, (2) if a(n)<0 then A120444(n)<0, and (3) a(n)<=0 whenever n is of the form 6k-1. Are these conjectures easy to prove/disprove? (A120444 is the first difference of A004125 Sum of remainders of n mod k, for k = 1,2,3,...,n).
