 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS It is an open question whether this sequence ever reaches 0. See A098007 and the Zimmermann link. The aliquot sequence starting at 306 joins this sequence after one step. One can note that the k-tuple abundance of 276 is only 5, since a(6) = 3790 is deficient. On the other hand, the k-tuple abundance of a(8) = 2716 is 164 since a(172) is deficient (see A081705 for definition of k-tuple abundance). - Michel Marcus, Dec 31 2013 REFERENCES Richard K.
