Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

The sum-of-divisor function A000203 and aliquot parts A001065 are defined only for positive integers, so the trajectory ends when 0 is reached, here at index 11. - M. F. Hasler, Feb 24 2018

FORMULA

a(n+1) = A001065(a(n)). - R. J. Mathar, Oct 11 2017

MAPLE

f := proc(n) option remember; if n = 0 then 60; else sigma(f(n-1))-f(n-1); fi; end:

PROG

(PARI) a(n, a=60)=for(i=1, n, a=sigma(a)-a); a \\ Will raise an error for n > 11, in agreement with the definition. - M. F. Hasler, Feb 24 2018
