COMMENTS

a(n) is multiplicative: if m and n are relatively primes then a(m*n) = a(n) * a(m) . For n >= 2 a(n)>=2 with equality iff n is prime.

FORMULA

(C_2)^m has A006116(m) subgroups, so this is a lower bound if n is a power of 2 (e.g. a(16) >= 67). - N. J. A. Sloane, Dec 01 2007

EXAMPLE

a(16) = 67: C16 has 5 subgroups, C2 X C8 has 11 subgroups, (C2)^2 X C4 has 27 subgroups, (C2)^4 has 67 subgroups, (C4)^2 has 15 subgroups.

PROG

(PARI, from Max Alekseyev) { A061034(n) = local(f=factorint(n)); prod(i=1, matsize(f)[1], A061034pp(f[i, 1], f[i, 2]) ) }

{ A061034pp(p, k) = res=0; for(i=1, k, aux_part(p, k-i, i, [])); res } \\ for prime power p^k

{ aux_part(p, n, m, v) = v = concat(v, m); if(n, for(i=1, min(m, n), aux_part(p, n-i, i, v)), res=max(res, numsubgrp(p, v)); ); } \\ iterate over all partitions
