COMMENTS

Inverse Möbius transform applied thrice to all 1's sequence; or, Dirichlet convolution of d(n) [ A000005 ].
Let n = Product p_i^e_i. tau (A000005) is tau_2, A007425 is tau_3, this sequence is tau_4, where tau_k(n) (also written as d_k(n)) = Product_i binomial(k1+e_i, k1) is the kth Piltz function. It gives the number of ordered factorizations of n as a product of k terms.
Appears to equal the number of solid partitions of n that can be extended in exactly 4 ways to a solid partition of n+1 by adding one element.  Wouter Meeussen, Sep 11 2004
Equals row sums of A127172.  Gary W. Adamson, Nov 05 2007
