COMMENTS

4 times the sum of divisors of n.

a(n) is also the total number of horizontal cells in the terraces of the n-th level of an irregular step pyramid (starting from the top) where the structure of every three-dimensional quadrant arises after the 90-degree zig-zag folding of every row of the diagram of the isosceles triangle A237593. The top of the pyramid is a square formed by four cells (see links and examples). - Omar E. Pol, Jul 04 2016

FORMULA

a(n) = 4*A000203(n) = 2*A074400(n).

a(n) = A000203(n) + A272027(n). - Omar E. Pol, Jul 04 2016

Dirichlet g.f.: 4*zeta(s-1)*zeta(s). - Ilya Gutkovskiy, Jul 04 2016

Conjecture: a(n) = sigma(3*n) = A144613(n) iff n is not a multiple of 3. - Omar E. Pol, Oct 02 2018

The conjecture above is correct. Write n = 3^e*m, gcd(3, m) = 1, then sigma(3*n) = sigma(3^(e+1))*sigma(m) = ((3^(e+2) - 1)/2)*sigma(m) = ((3^(e+2) - 1)/((3^(e+1) - 1))*sigma(3^e*m), and (3^(e+2) - 1)/(3^(e+1) - 1) = 4 if and only if e = 0. - Jianing Song, Feb 03 2019

EXAMPLE

For n = 4 the sum of divisors of 4 is 1 + 2 + 4 = 7, so a(4) = 4*7 = 28.

For n = 5 the sum of divisors of 5 is 1 + 5 = 6, so a(5) = 4*6 = 24.

For n = 1..5, the figure n represents the reflection in the four quadrants of the symmetric representation of S(n) = sigma(n) = A000203(n). For more information see A237270 and A237593.

The diagram also represents the top view of the first four terraces of the step pyramid described in Comments section. - Omar E. Pol, Jul 04 2016
