Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

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.

CROSSREFS

Cf. A000265, A002182, A002183, A212181.

A160233 gives the n-th integer that is the largest member of A002183 with its particular odd part.

Sequence in context: A068503 A073575 A146431 * A115716 A079412 A306861
