COMMENTS

sigma(n)/n is in A054030.
Also numbers such that the sum of the reciprocals of the divisors is an integer.  Harvey P. Dale, Jul 24 2001
Luca's solution of problem 11090, which proves that for k>1 there are an infinite number of n such that n divides sigma_k(n), does not apply to this sequence. However, it is conjectured that this sequence is also infinite.  T. D. Noe, Nov 04 2007
Numbers k such that sigma(k) is divisible by all divisors of k, subsequence of A166070.  Jaroslav Krizek, Oct 06 2009
A017666(a(n)) = 1.  Reinhard Zumkeller, Apr 06 2012
Bach, Miller, & Shallit show that this sequence can be recognized in polynomial time with arbitrarily small error by a probabilistic Turing machine; that is, this sequence is in BPP.  Charles R Greathouse IV, Jun 21 2013
Conjecture: If n is such that 2^n1 is in A066175 then a(n) is a triangular number.  Ivan N. Ianakiev, Aug 26 2013
Conjecture: Every multiplyperfect number is practical (A005153). I've verified this conjecture for the first 5261 terms with abundancy > 2 using Achim Flammenkamp's data. The even perfect numbers are easily shown to be practical, but every practical number > 1 is even, so a weak form says every even multiplyperfect number is practical.  Jaycob Coleman, Oct 15 2013
Numbers such that A054024(n) = 0.  Michel Marcus, Nov 16 2013
Numbers n such that k(n) = A229110(n) = antisigma(n) mod n = A024816(n) mod n = A000217(n) mod n = (n(n+1)/2) mod n = A142150(n). k(n) = n/2 for even n; k(n) = 0 for odd n (for number 1 and eventually odd multiplyperfect numbers n > 1).  Jaroslav Krizek, May 28 2014
The only terms m > 1 of this sequence that are not in A145551 are m for which sigma(m)/m is not a divisor of m. Conjecture: after 1, A323653 lists all such m (and no other numbers).  Antti Karttunen, Mar 19 2021

EXAMPLE

120 is OK because divisors of 120 are {1,2,3,4,5,6,8,10,12,15,20,24,30,40,60,120}, the sum of which is 360=120*3.
