 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Most of the early terms are the square of a prime or the fourth power of a prime. LINKS Amiram Eldar, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..500 EXAMPLE sigma(sigma(sigma(81))) = 160 but sigma(sigma(sigma(sigma(81)))) = 378, so 81 is in the sequence. PROG (PARI) is(n) = {my(m = n, nn = 2*n, c = 0); while(m < nn, m = sigma(m); c++); c == 4; } \\ Amiram Eldar, Mar 18 2024 CROSSREFS Cf. A000203, A055020, A055021, A107912, A107913.
