COMMENTS

The function A(x) enumerating the number of terms not exceeding x has the property that lim A(x)/x exists (Hildebrand, 1990).

FORMULA

a(n) ~ c*n with 18.2 < c < 18.6 (claimed by Kobayashi and Trudgian).

EXAMPLE

7 is in the sequence because sigma(14) = 1+2+7+14 = 24 <= sigma(15) = 1+3+5+15 = 24;

31 is in the sequence because sigma(62) = 1+2+31+62 = 96 <= sigma(63) = 1+3+7+9+21+63 = 104.
