COMMENTS

Row n begins with n because it is a factorization of length 1. In each factorization, the factors are in nondecreasing order. This sequence is A056472 with the factorizations in a different order. Sequence A001055(n) gives the number of factorizations of n; A066637(n) gives the number of numbers in row n. In the Mathematica program, the function f returns a list of the factorizations of n.
These factorizations are useful in determining the forms of numbers that have a given number of divisors. For example, to find the forms of numbers that have 12 divisors, we look at the four factorizations of 12 (12, 2*6, 3*4, 2*2*3), subtract 1 from each factor, and find the forms to be p^11, p q^5, p^2 q^3, and p q r^2, where p, q, and r are prime numbers.
