a(n) is the number of arrangements of all divisors of n of the form d_1=n, d_2, d_3, ..., d_tau(n) such that every ratio d_(i+1)/d_i and d_tau(n)/d_1 is prime or 1/prime.

COMMENTS

a(n) depends on exponents of prime power factorization of n only; moreover, it is invariant with respect to permutations of them. An equivalent multiset formulation of the problem: for a given finite multiset A, we should, beginning with A, to get all submultisets of A, if, by every step, we remove or join 1 element and such that, joining to the last submultiset one element, we again obtain A. How many ways to do this?
Via Seqfan Discussion List (Aug 07 2010), Alois P. Heinz proved that every subsequence of the form a(p), a(p*q), a(p*q*r), ..., where p, q, r, ... are distinct primes, coincides with A003042.  Vladimir Shevelev, Nov 07 2014

FORMULA

a(p)=1, and, for k>=2, a(p^k)=0; a(p*q)=a(p^2*q)=a(p^3*q)=2; a(p^2*q^2)=0; a(p*q*r)=12, etc. (here p,q,r are distinct primes).


EXAMPLE

If n=p*q, then we have exactly two required chains: p*q, p, 1, q and p*q, q, 1, p. Thus a(6)=a(10)=a(14)=...=2.
