COMMENTS

Also numbers that are the product of a power of 2 (A000079) and the square of an odd prime, or numbers having exactly 3 odd divisors: A001227(a(n)) = 3.  Reinhard Zumkeller, May 01 2012
Numbers n such that the symmetric representation of sigma(n) has 3 subparts.  Omar E. Pol, Dec 28 2016
Also numbers that can be expressed as the sum of k > 1 consecutive positive integers in exactly 2 ways. E.g., 2+3+4 = 9 and 4+5 = 9, 3+4+5+6 = 18 and 5+6+7 = 18.  Julie Jones, Aug 13 2018
Appears to be numbers n such that tau(2*n) = tau(n) + 3.  Gary Detlefs, Jan 22 2020
Column 3 of A266531.  Omar E. Pol, Dec 01 2020

FORMULA

Sum_{n>=1} 1/a(n) = 2 * Sum_{p odd prime} 1/p^2 = 2 * A085548  1/2 = 0.404494...  Amiram Eldar, Feb 18 2021


EXAMPLE

a(1)=9 is the smallest number with 3 run sums: 2+3+4 = 4+5 = 9.
