COMMENTS

Consider a natural number r such that r has 19 proper divisors and 6 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 13. Where n is a positive integer, d(r^n)=(4*n+9)*n^2.

The integers that satisfy the proper-divisor-prime-factor requirement are those of A179644.

FORMULA

G.f.: x*(13+16*x-5*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

EXAMPLE

The smallest integer that satisfies this is 240: It has 19 proper divisors (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 16, 20, 24, 30, 40, 48, 60, 80, 120) and 6 prime factors (2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 5), so d(240)=13. The square of 240, 57600, we would expect to have a difference of 68 between the number of its proper divisors and prime factors, and with respectively 80 and 12, d(57600)=68 indeed. Checking this with further integer powers of 240 will continue to generate terms in this sequence.
