 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS Sequence is similar to A167485, but here, the partial sums are evaluated in decreasing order starting from the highest divisor of n, n, down to the smallest one, 1. Thus for any n>0, a(n) exists and is at most equal to n: the highest divisor of n. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=0..68. EXAMPLE From n=1 to 2, these partial sums are: 1; 2, 3. So 3 has appeared in the partial divisors sums of 2. Hence a(3)=2. PROG (PARI) ps(n) = {vps = []; d = divisors(n); ips = 0; forstep (i=#d, 1, -1, ips += d[i]; vps = concat(vps, ips); ); vps; } a(n) = {if (n==0, return (1)); i=1; found=0; while (! found, v = ps(i); if (vecsearch(v, n), found=1, i++); ); i; } CROSSREFS Cf.
