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

tau(n) is divisible by 3 iff at least one prime in the prime factorization of n has exponent of the form 3*m + 2. This sequence is an extension of the sequence A038109 in which the numbers has at least one prime with exponent 2 (the case of m = 0 here ) in their prime factorization.

The union of A211337 and A211338 is the complementary sequence to this one. [Douglas Latimer, Apr 12 2012]

FORMULA

Conjecture: a(n) ~ k*n where k = 1/(1 - prod(1 - (p-1)/(p^(3*k)))) = 3.743455... where p ranges over the primes and k ranges over the positive integers. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Apr 13 2012

EXAMPLE

a(7) = 28 because the number of divisors of 28 d(28) = 6

MAPLE
