%N a(n) = (3*n+7)*n^2.

%C Consider a natural number r such that r has 15 proper divisors and 5 prime factors (note that these prime factors do not have to be distinct). The difference between these two values, say d(r), is in this case 10. Where n is a positive integer, d(r^n)=(3*n+7)*n^2.

%F a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - 6*a(n-2) + 4*a(n-3) - a(n-4) for n>3. - _Vincenzo Librandi_, Apr 15 2015

%e The smallest integer that satisfies this is 120: it has 15 proper divisors (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 20, 24, 30, 40, 60) and 5 prime factors (2, 2, 2, 3, 5), so d(120)=10. The square of 120, 14400, we would expect to have a difference of 52 between the number of its proper divisors and prime factors, and with respectively 62 and 10, d(120)=52 indeed. Checking this with further integer powers of 120 will continue to generate terms in this sequence.

%e The integers which satisfy the proper-divisor-prime-factor requirement are those of A189975.
