COMMENTS

Chen & Zhao show that the lower density of this sequence is at least 0.06, improving on te Riele. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Dec 28 2013

Numbers k such that A048138(k) = 0. A048138(k) measures how "touchable" k is. - Jeppe Stig Nielsen, Jan 12 2020

FORMULA

Complement of A078923. - Lekraj Beedassy, Jul 19 2005

MATHEMATICA

untouchableQ[n_] := Catch[ Do[ If[n == DivisorSigma[1, k]-k, Throw[True]], {k, 0, (n-1)^2}]] === Null; Reap[ Table[ If[ untouchableQ[n], Print[n]; Sow[n]], {n, 2, 700}]][[2, 1]] (* Jean-François Alcover, Jun 29 2012, after Benoit Cloitre *)

PROG
