EXAMPLE

840 is a term of this sequence because 840 sets a new record (9) for the number by which it must be multiplied to double its number of divisors (840 has 32 divisors; the smallest number with 64 divisors is 840 * 9 = 7560).
120's record of 7 is not exceeded by any number from 121 to 839.


MATHEMATICA

f[ n_ ] := f[ n ] = Module[ {i = 2}, While[ 2 * Length[ Divisors[ n ] ] != Length[ Divisors[ i * n ] ], i++ ]; Return[ i ] ]; A138570 = {}; searchMax = 100000; currHigh = 0; i = 1; While[ i < searchMax, n = f[ i ]; If[ n > currHigh, A138570 = {A138570, i}; currHigh = n ]; i++ ]; A138570 = Flatten[ A138570 ]
