%C Consider an irregular step pyramid with n steps. The base of the pyramid is equal to the symmetric representation of A024916(n), the sum of all divisors of all positive integers <= n. Two of the faces of the pyramid are the same as the representation of the n-th triangular numbers as a staircase. The total area of the pyramid is equal to 2*A024916(n) + A046092(n). The volume is equal to A175254(n). By definition a(2n-1) is A000203(n), the sum of divisors of n. Starting from the top a(2n-1) is also the total area of the horizontal part of the n-th step of the pyramid. By definition, a(2n) = A005843(n) = 2n. Starting from the top, a(2n) is also the total area of the irregular vertical part of the n-th step of the pyramid.

%C On the other hand the sequence also has a symmetric representation in two dimensions, see Example.

%C From _Omar E. Pol_, Dec 31 2016: (Start)

%C We can find the pyramid after the following sequences: A196020 --> A236104 --> A235791 --> A237591 --> A237593.

%C The structure of this infinite pyramid arises after the 90-degree-zig-zag folding of the diagram of the isosceles triangle A237593 (see the links).

%C The terraces at the m-th level of the pyramid are also the parts of the symmetric representation of sigma(m), m >= 1, hence the sum of the areas of the terraces at the m-th level equals A000203(m).

%C Note that the step pyramid is also one of the 3D-quadrants of the step pyramid described in A244050.

%e The symmetric pattern emerges from the front view of the step pyramid.

%e Note that starting from this diagram A000203 is obtained as follows:

%e In the pyramid the area of the k-th vertical region in the n-th level on the front view is equal to A237593(n,k), and the sum of all areas of the vertical regions in the n-th level on the front view is equal to 2n.

%e The area of the k-th horizontal region in the n-th level is equal to A237270(n,k), and the sum of all areas of the horizontal regions in the n-th level is equal to sigma(n) = A000203(n).
