Abstract: Iterates of a function defined by the sum of the prime divisors of a number, where the multiple factors are counted multiply, are considered. The process of iteration is terminated at a prime. The density distribution of these primes is investigated empirically, for $ N \leqq 60000$ and it is found to be quite constant
