COMMENTS

For n>=1, A100484(n+1) gives the position where n occurs for the first time (setting also the records for the sequence).

a(n) = the difference between the largest and the smallest parts of the partition having Heinz number n. We define the Heinz number of a partition p = [p_1, p_2, ..., p_r] as Product(p_j-th prime, j=1...r) (concept used by Alois P. Heinz in A215366 as an "encoding" of a partition). For example, for the partition [1, 1, 2, 4, 10] we get 2*2*3*7*29 = 2436. Example: a(57) = 6; indeed, the partition having Heinz number 57 = 3*19 is [2, 8]. - Emeric Deutsch, Jun 04 2015

FORMULA

If n = p_i * ... * p_k, where p_i <= ... <= p_k are not necessarily distinct primes (sorted into nondescending order) in the prime factorization of n, where p_i = A000040(i), then a(n) = (k-i).

a(n) = A061395(n) - A055396(n).

MAPLE

MATHEMATICA

(Scheme) (define (A243055 n) (- (A061395 n) (A055396 n)))

CROSSREFS

Differs from A242411 for the first time at n=30.
