COMMENTS

Let r be a natural number such that r has 17 proper divisors and 5 prime factors (note that these prime factors do not have to be distinct). The difference between these two values, say d(r), is in this case 12. Where n is a positive integer, d(r^n)=(4*n+8)*n^2.

The integers that satisfy the proper-divisor-prime-factor requirement are those of A179643.

FORMULA

a(n) = 4*A152618(n+1).

G.f.: 4*x*(3+4*x-x^2)/(1-x)^4. - Vincenzo Librandi, Jun 06 2015

a(n) = 4*a(n-1)-6*a(n-2)+4*a(n-3)-a(n-4). - Vincenzo Librandi, Jun 06 2015

For any m, let x=A179643(m), then a(n) = A000005(x^n) - A001222(x^n). - Michel Marcus, Jul 09 2015

EXAMPLE

The smallest integer that satisfies the (17, 5) requirement is 180: it has 17 proper divisors (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10, 12, 15, 18, 20, 30, 36, 45, 60, 90) and 5 prime factors (2, 2, 3, 3, 5), so d(120)=12=a(1).

The square of 180, 32400, we would expect to have a difference of 64 between the number of its proper divisors and prime factors, and with respectively 74 and 10, d(32400)=64=a(2) indeed. Checking this with further integer powers of 180 will continue to generate terms in this sequence.
