%N First coefficient of the lindep transform of sigma(n).

%C If b(n) is a sequence of integers, we will call the "lindep transform" of b(n) the triplet of sequences (x(n), y(n), z(n)) such as:

%C (i) x(n) >= 1

%C (ii) x(n) + abs (y(n)) + abs (z(n)) is minimal

%C (iii) x(n)*b(n) + y(n)*n + z(n) = 0

%C (iv) if with the conditions (i), (ii), (iii) there exist several triplets (x(n), y(n), z(n)) we then choose the one with minimal y(n).

%C We call x(n) the first coefficient of the lindep transform of b(n), y(n) the second and z(n) the third. As this corresponds to the lindep function of PARI/GP this transform is called "lindep transform".

%H Benoit Cloitre, <a href="/A339790/a339790.png">a(n)/sqrt(n) every 1000 up to 6.10^6</a>

%F Conjecture: a(n) << sqrt(n) with 0 < limsup n-->infty a(n)/sqrt(n) < infty exists (see graphic). Trivially liminf a(n)/sqrt(n) = 0 since for prime n we have a(n)=1.

%o (PARI) a(n)=(lindep([sigma(n),n,1])*sign(lindep([sigma(n),n,1])))
