COMMENTS

Numbers n such that A324054(n-1) is equal to A324108(n), which is a multiplicative function with A324108(p^e) = A324054((p^e)-1).

Prime powers (A000961) is a subsequence by definition.

Also A070776 is a subsequence. This follows because for every n of the form 2^i * p^j (where p is an odd prime, and i >= 0, j >= 0), we have A324108(2^i * p^j) = A324054(2^i - 1)*A324054(p^j - 1) = sigma(A005940(2^i)) * sigma(A005940(p^j)). Because A005940(1) = 1, and A005940(2n) = 2*A005940(n), the powers of two are among the fixed points of A005940 (cf. A029747), thus the left half of product is sigma(2^i), while on the other hand, we know that A005940(p^j) is odd (because A005940 also preserves parity), and thus the whole product is equal to sigma(2^i * A005940(p^j)) = sigma(A005940(2^i * p^j)) = A324054((2^i * p^j)-1).

See subsequence A324111 for less regular solutions.
