 A268674 a(1) = 1, after which, for odd numbers: a(n) = A078898(n)-th number k for which A055396(k) = A055396(n)-1, and for even numbers: a(n) = a(A000265(n)). 26

 OFFSET 1,3 COMMENTS For odd numbers n > 1, a(n) tells which term is on the immediately preceding row of A083221, in the same column where n itself is. The sequence offers a left inverse for A250469 that is slightly easier to compute than A250470. LINKS Antti Karttunen, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..32769 FORMULA a(1) = 1, after which, a(n) = a(A000265(n)) if n is even, otherwise for odd n, a(n) = A083221(A055396(n)-1, A078898(n)). Other identities. For all n >= 1: a(A250469(n)) = n. [This works as a left inverse for sequence A250469.] a(2n) = a(n). [The even bisection gives the whole sequence back.] a(2n-1) = A250470(2n-1). [Matches with A250470 on odd numbers.] a(A000040(n+1)) = A000040(n). [Maps each odd prime to the preceding prime.] a(A001248(n+1)) = A001248(n). [Maps each square of an odd prime to the square of the preceding prime.] MATHEMATICA (* b = A250469 *) b[1] = 1; b[n_] := If[PrimeQ[n], NextPrime[n], m1 = p1 = FactorInteger[n][[1, 1]]; For[ k1 = 1, m1 <= n, m1 += p1; If[m1 == n, Break[]]; If[ FactorInteger[m1][[1, 1]] == p1, k1++]]; m2 = p2 = NextPrime[p1]; For[k2 = 1, True, m2 += p2, If[ FactorInteger[m2][[1, 1]] == p2, k2++]; If[k1 + 2 == k2, Return[m2]]]]; a[1] = a[2] = 1; a[n_?EvenQ] := a[n] = a[n/2]; a[n_] := a[n] = For[k = 1, True, k++, If[b[k] == n, Return[k]]]; Array[a, 100] (* Jean-François Alcover, Mar 14 2016 *) PROG (Scheme, with memoization-macro definec) (definec (A268674 n) (cond ((= 1 n) n) ((even? n) (A268674 (A000265 n))) (else (A083221bi (- (A055396 n) 1) (A078898 n))))) ;; Where A083221bi implements A083221 as a dyadic function.
