COMMENTS

Similarly to A019278, 2 and sigma(2) are both terms, and this can happen also for further iterations of sigma on known terms, thus providing new terms outside the current known range. - Michel Marcus, May 01 2017

Also it occurs that many divisors of A019278 are terms of this sequence. - Michel Marcus, May 28 2017

EXAMPLE

10 is a term because applying sigma four times we see that 10 -> 18 -> 39 -> 168 -> 120, and 120 = 12*10. So 10 is a (4,12)-perfect number.
