 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS If n is an odd prime (A065091) then a(n) = (n + 1)/2. If n is a power of 2 (A000079) then a(n) = 2*n - 1. If n is a perfect number (A000396) then a(n) = 1 assuming there are no odd perfect numbers. a(n) is also the smallest number in the n-th row of the triangles A279391 and A280851. a(n) is also the smallest nonzero term in the n-th row of triangle A296508. The symmetric representation of sigma(n) has A001227(n) subparts. For the definition of the "subpart" see A279387. For a diagram with the subparts for the first 16 positive integers see A296508. LINKS EXAMPLE For n = 15 the subparts of the symmetric representation of sigma(15) are [8, 7, 1, 8], the smallest subpart is 1, so a(15) = 1.
