Numbers which never occur: 3, 5, 9, 11, 14, 17, 19, 21, 25, 27, 29, 31, 33, 34, 35, 37, 39, 41, 43, 47, 51, ..., ;

which first occur for n: 0, 6, 10, 12, 18, 20, 24, 30, 36, 40, 42, 48, 56, 60, 72, 84, 90, 108, 120, 144, 168, 180, 210, 240, 280, 300, 330, 336, 360, 420, 480, 504, 540, 600, 630, 660, 720, 840, 1008, 1080, 1200, 1260, 1440, 1560, 1680, 1980, 2100, 2160, 2310, 2340, 2520, ..., .

If instead we look for the number of unordered ways two distinct elements {a, b) of S satisfy a*b = n, then a(n) = floor(sigma_0(n) - 2)) = A211159(n+1).

Number of 2 X 2 singular matrices of the form

[c a]

[b n]

with a, b, and c distinct positive integers less than n and a < b.

FORMULA

a(n) = (A278348(n) - A278348(n-1))/8.

a(p) = 0 for any prime p and for n: 0, 1 & 4.

EXAMPLE

a(6) = 2 since 2*3 = 1*6 and 3*4 = 2*6;

a(8) = 2 since 2*4 = 1*8 and 4*6 = 3*8;

a(9) = 1 since 3*6 = 2*9;

a(10) = 4 since 2*5 = 1*10, 4*5 = 2*10, 5*6 = 3*10, and 5*8 = 4*10;

a(12) = 8 since 2*6 = 1*12, 3*4 = 1*12, 3*8 = 2*12, 4*6 = 2*12, 4*9 = 3*12, 6*8 = 4*12, 6*10 = 5*12, and 8*9 = 6*12;

etc.

MATHEMATICA

f[n_] := Block[{c = 0, k = 1}, While[k < n, c += Count[ Times @@@ Select[ Tuples[ Rest@ Most@ Divisors[k*n], 2], #[[1]] < #[[2]] < n &], k*n]; k++]; c]; Array[f, 52]
