FORMULA

With d(n) = number of divisors(n), d(d(d(d(a(n))))) = 2 and d(d(d(a(n)))) > 2.

A036459(a(n)) = 4. - Ivan Neretin, Jan 25 2016

EXAMPLE

a(3)=20 and a(17)=63; for both x=20 and 63, d(x)=6 and d(d(x))=4, the 3rd iterates are 3 and the equilibrium value, i.e., 2 appears as 4th iterates.

PROG

(PARI) isok(n) = ((nd=numdiv(n)) != 2) && ((nd=numdiv(nd)) != 2) && ((nd=numdiv(nd)) != 2) && ((nd=numdiv(nd)) == 2); \\ Michel Marcus, Dec 30 2013 & Jan 26 2015
