COMMENTS

The Matula-Goebel number of a rooted tree is defined in the following recursive manner: to the one-vertex tree there corresponds the number 1; to a tree T with root degree 1 there corresponds the t-th prime number, where t is the Matula-Goebel number of the tree obtained from T by deleting the edge emanating from the root; to a tree T with root degree m>=2 there corresponds the product of the Matula-Goebel numbers of the m branches of T.

a(n) is, for n >= 2, the number of prime function prime(.) = A000040(.) operations in the complete reduction of n. See the W. Lang link with a list of the reductions for n = 2..100, where a curly bracket notation {.} is used for prime(.). - Wolfdieter Lang, Apr 03 2018

FORMULA

a(1)=0; if n = p(t) (the t-th prime), then a(n)=1 + a(t); if n = rs (r,s>=2), then a(n)=a(r)+a(s). The Maple program is based on this recursive formula.

a(n) = A061775(n) - 1.

EXAMPLE

a(7) = 3 because the rooted tree with Matula-Goebel number 7 is the rooted tree Y.

a(2^m) = m because the rooted tree with Matula-Goebel number 2^m is the star tree with m edges.

MAPLE

with(numtheory): a := proc (n) local r, s: r := proc (n) options operator, arrow: op(1, factorset(n)) end proc: s := proc (n) options operator, arrow: n/r(n) end proc: if n = 1 then 0 elif bigomega(n) = 1 then 1+a(pi(n)) else a(r(n))+a(s(n)) end if end proc: seq(a(n), n = 1 .. 110);

MATHEMATICA

a[1] = 0; a[n_?PrimeQ] := a[n] = 1 + a[PrimePi[n]]; a[n_] := Total[#[[2]] * a[#[[1]] ]& /@ FactorInteger[n]];
