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 - Product(1 - (p-1)/(p^(3*i)))) = 3.743455... where p ranges over the primes and i ranges over the positive integers. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Apr 13 2012

The asymptotic density of this sequence is 1 - zeta(3)/zeta(2) = 1 - 6*zeta(3)/Pi^2 = 0.2692370305... (Sathe, 1945). Therefore, the above conjecture, a(n) ~ k*n, is true, but k = 1/(1-6*zeta(3)/Pi^2) = 3.7141993349... - Amiram Eldar, Jul 26 2020

EXAMPLE

a(7) = 28 is a term because the number of divisors of 28, d(28) = 6, is divisible by 3.
