Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

Related to hyperperfect numbers of a certain form.

The formula by J. Krizek is explained as follows: If p=(3n+1)/2 is prime, then it is an integer, and p must be of the form p=3m-1, i.e., p=A003627(k). OTOH, if p=A003627(k), then all k<p are coprime to p, so we have B(p) = sum(k^2, k<^p)/sum(k, k<p) = (2p-1)/3. This is an integer, since p=3m-1, and for this number n=(2p-1)/3=2m-1, we have that (3n+1)/2=p is prime. - M. F. Hasler, Nov 29 2010

FORMULA

a(n) = A175505(A003627(n)). - Jaroslav Krizek, Aug 01 2010

EXAMPLE

a(6) = 19 because for A003627(6) = 29 holds: B(29) = A053818(29) / A023896(29) = 7714 / 406 = 19. Cf. A179871-A179891, A003627, A007645. - Jaroslav Krizek, Aug 01 2010
