COMMENTS

MacMahon calls this the potency of n.
Downgrades the operators in a prime decomposition. E.g., 40 factors as 2^3 * 5 and sopfr(40) = 2 * 3 + 5 = 11.
Consider all ways of writing n as a product of zero, one, or more factors; sequence gives smallest sum of terms.  Amarnath Murthy, Jul 07 2001
a(n) <= n for all n, and a(n) = n iff n is 4 or a prime.
Look at the graph of this sequence. At the lower edge of the logarithmic scatterplot there is a set of fuzzy but unmistakable diagonal fringes, sloping toward the southeast. Their spacing gradually increases, and their slopes gradually decrease; they are more distinct toward the lower edge of the range. Is any explanation known?  Allan C. Wechsler, Oct 11 2015
For n >= 2, the glb and lub are: 3 * log(n) / log(3) <= a(n) <= n, where the lub occurs when n = 3^k, k >= 1. (Jakimczuk 2012)  Daniel Forgues, Oct 12 2015
Differs from A337310 beginning with n at 64, 192, 256, 320, 448, 512, ..., .
The number of terms which equal k is A000607(k).
The first occurrence of k>1 is A056240(k).
Amarnath Murthy comment of Jul 07 2001 is the result of the fundamental theorem of arithmetic.

FORMULA

If n = Product p_j^k_j then a(n) = Sum p_j * k_j.
Dirichlet g.f. f(s)*zeta(s), where f(s) = Sum_{p prime} p/(p^s1) = Sum_{k>0} primezeta(k*s1) is the Dirichlet g.f. for A120007. Totally additive with a(p^e) = p*e.  Franklin T. AdamsWatters, Jun 02 2006
Sum_{n>=1} (1)^a(n)/n^s = ((2^s + 1)/(2^s  1))*zeta(2*s)/zeta(s), if Re(s)>1 and 0 if s=1 (Alladi and Erdős, 1977).  Amiram Eldar, Nov 02 2020


EXAMPLE

a(24) = 2+2+2+3 = 9.
a(30) = 10: 30 can be written as 30, 15*2, 10*3, 6*5, 5*3*2. The corresponding sums are 30, 17, 13, 11, 10. Among these 10 is the least.
