# Prime powers

Prime powers are prime numbers raised to powers. For example, 729 is a prime power, being 3 6. Technically, the primes themselves are prime powers, too, with exponent 1, but generally an exponent of 2 or greater is meant. (Along similar lines, the number 1 is technically a prime power as well, with the exponent being 0.)

## Number of factorizations of n into prime powers greater than 1

${\displaystyle a(n)=\prod _{i=1}^{\omega (n)}p(\alpha _{i}),\,}$

where ${\displaystyle \scriptstyle \omega (n)\,}$ is the number of distinct prime factors of ${\displaystyle \scriptstyle n\,}$, ${\displaystyle \scriptstyle p(n)\,}$ is the number of partitions of ${\displaystyle \scriptstyle n\,}$ and the ${\displaystyle \scriptstyle \alpha _{i}\,}$ are the exponents of the distinct prime factors ${\displaystyle \scriptstyle p_{i}\,}$ of ${\displaystyle \scriptstyle n\,}$

${\displaystyle n=\prod _{i=1}^{\omega (n)}p_{i}^{\alpha _{i}}\,}$
