(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A295043 a(n) is the largest number k such that sigma(k) = 2^n or 0 if no such k exists. 1

COMMENTS

If a(n) > 0, then it is a term of A046528 (numbers that are a product of distinct Mersenne primes).

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..34.

FORMULA

a(A078426(n)) = 0.

a(A180221(n)) > 0.

a(n) <= 2^n - 1 with equality when n is a Mersenne exponent (A000043). - Michael B. Porter, Nov 14 2017

EXAMPLE

a(0) = 1 because 1 is the largest number k with sigma(k) = 1 = 2^0.

a(5) = 31 because 31 is the largest number k with sigma(k) = 32 = 2^5.

a(6) = 0 because there is no number k with sigma(k) = 64 = 2^6.

PROG

(PARI) a(n) = {local(r, k); r=0; for(k=1, 2^n, if(sigma(k) == 2^n, r=k)); return(r)}; \\ Michael B. Porter, Nov 14 2017

(PARI) a(n) = forstep(k=2^n, 1, -1, if (sigma(k)==2^n, return (k))); return (0) \\ Rémy Sigrist, Jan 08 2018

CROSSREFS

Cf. A000043, A000203, A046528, A048947, A057637, A180221.

Cf. A247956 (the smallest number k instead of the largest).

Cf. A078426 (no solution to the equation sigma(x)=2^n).

A000668 (Mersenne primes) is a subsequence.

Sequence in context: A199068 A198490 A247956 * A074051 A048292 A072450
