COMMENTS

All prime powers greater than 1 are in the sequence. No factorial number can be a term.  Arkadiusz Wesolowski, Feb 16 2014
Even terms are in A088827. Any term also in A005153 is either an even square or twice an even square not divisibly by 3.  Jaycob Coleman, Jun 08 2014
All primes satisfy the second condition since GCD(p, p+1) = 1, thus making this sequence a proper subset of A014567.  Robert G. Wilson v, Oct 02 2014

FORMULA

A009194(a(n)) * (1  A010051(a(n))) = 1.  Reinhard Zumkeller, Mar 23 2013
a(n) >> n log log log n, see Luca. (Clearly excluding the primes only makes the nth term larger.)  Charles R Greathouse IV, Feb 17 2014


EXAMPLE

4 is in the sequence since it is not a prime and its divisors are 1, 2 & 4 sum to 7. GCD(7, 4) = 1.
21 is in the sequences since it is not prime and its divisors being 1, 3, 7 & 21 sum to 32 which is coprime to 21.
