COMMENTS

The "odd part" (largest odd divisor) of the number of divisors of n is a function of the exponents >=2 in the prime factorization of n (cf. A212172, A212181).
The number 1 appears a total of 18 times (see Graeme link for proof). Ramanujan proved that no number appears an infinite number of times (see Ramanujan link). It would be interesting to know more about a) which odd numbers appear in the sequence and b) how many times a number of a given size can appear in the sequence. See also A160233.

FORMULA

a(n) = A000265(A002183(n)) = A212181(A002182(n)).


EXAMPLE

The highly composite number 48 has a total of 10 divisors. Since 48 = A002182(8), A002183(8) = 10. Since the largest odd divisor of 10 is 5, a(8) = 5.
