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.

Robert Israel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000

EXAMPLE

The divisors of twelve are {1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 12}, the first difference is {1, 1, 1, 2 and 6}. The even differences add up to 8 while the odd differences add up to 3. The absolute difference between the even and odd first differences of 12 therefore is 5.

MAPLE

f:= proc(n) local Q, evens, odds;

  Q:= sort(convert(numtheory:-divisors(n), list));

  evens, odds:= selectremove(type, Q[2..-1]-Q[1..-2], even);

  abs(convert(evens, `+`)-convert(odds, `+`))

end proc:

map(f, [$1..100]); # Robert Israel, Jul 05 2016

MATHEMATICA

f[ n_Integer ] := (d = Divisors[ n ]; l = Length[ d ]; s = 0; i = 1; While[ i < l, e = d[ [ i + 1 ] ] - d[ [ i ] ]; If[ EvenQ[ e ], s = s + e, s = s - e ]; i++ ]; Abs[ s ]); Table[ f[ n ], {n, 1, 75} ]

avd[n_]:=Module[{d=Differences[Divisors[n]]}, Abs[Total[Select[d, OddQ]]-Total[ Select[ d, EvenQ]]]]; Array[avd, 80] (* Harvey P. Dale, Dec 31 2018 *)
