FORMULA

Multiplicative with a(p^e) = p^floor(e/2) + (p1)*p^(e1) for prime p.  Andrew Howroyd, Jul 17 2018
Sum_{k=1..n} a(k) ~ c*n^2, where c = (1/2) * Product_{p prime} (1  1/(p^2*(p^2 + p + 1))) = 0.47717662698737204270...  Amiram Eldar, Sep 08 2020


MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := Product[{p, e} = pe; p^Quotient[e, 2] + (p1)*p^(e1), {pe, FactorInteger[n]}]; Array[a, 72] (* JeanFrançois Alcover, Sep 13 2018, after Andrew Howroyd *)


PROG

(PARI) a(n)={my(f=factor(n)); prod(i=1, #f~, my(p=f[i, 1], e=f[i, 2]); p^(e\2) + (p1)*p^(e1))} \\ Andrew Howroyd, Jul 17 2018
