 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Sigma_k(n) > sigma_k(m) for all m < n (where the function sigma_k(n) is the sum of the k-th powers of all divisors of n) for all or almost all negative values of k. This sequence is infinite, because it includes every term in A051451. This follows from the formula for a(n), and the fact that A051451 consists of the distinct terms of A003418. - Hal M. Switkay, Mar 22 2021 LINKS T. D. Noe, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..448 (terms < 10^100) Wikipedia, Table of divisors. FORMULA For n >= 4, a(n) is the smallest integer > a(n-1) such that the list of its divisors precedes the list of a(n-1)'s divisors in lexicographic order. EXAMPLE The list of the divisors of a(6)=24, {1,2,3,4,6,8,12,24}, lexicographically precedes the list for the previous term in the sequence (in this case, {1,2,3,4,6,12}, the list for a(5)=12). Therefore 24 belongs in the sequence. 36 does not satisfy this requirement, as {1,2,3,4,6,9,...} comes after {1,2,3,4,6,8,...} in lexicographic order. Since 8^k/9^k increases without limit as k decreases, sigma(36)_k < sigma(24)_k for almost all negative values of k; therefore 36 does not belong in the sequence. CROSSREFS Cf. A004394, A095849.
