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  (p1)/(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
