A304464 Start with the normalized multiset of prime factors of n > 1. Given a multiset, take the multiset of its multiplicities. Repeat this until a multiset of size 1 is obtained. a(n) is the unique element of this multiset. 15

COMMENTS

a(1) = 0 by convention.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..83.

FORMULA

a(prime(n)) = n.

a(p^n) = n where p is any prime number and n > 1.

a(product of n > 1 distinct primes) = n.

EXAMPLE

Starting with the normalized multiset of prime factors of 360, we obtain {1,1,1,2,2,3} -> {1,2,3} -> {1,1,1} -> {3}, so a(360) = 3.

MATHEMATICA

Table[If[n===1, 0, NestWhile[Sort[Length/@Split[#]]&, If[n===1, {}, Flatten[Cases[FactorInteger[n], {p_, k_}:>Table[PrimePi[p], {k}]]]], Length[#]>1&]//First], {n, 100}]
