COMMENTS

Only one odd freestyle perfect number is known: 198585576189, found by Descartes.
This sequence consists of perfect numbers A000396 and those which aren't, called spoofperfect numbers A174292. Roughly said, a spoofperfect number is a number that would be perfect if one or more of its composite factors were wrongly assumed to be prime, i.e., taken as a "spoof prime".  Daniel Forgues, Nov 15 2009 (slightly rephrased)
The right hand side of the second equation in the definition, 2n = ..., equals the sum of divisors sigma(n), if all of the f_i are distinct primes. If they aren't, there arise some ambiguities: See A174292 for further discussion.  M. F. Hasler, Jan 13 2013

EXAMPLE

n = 60 = (3^1)*(4^1)*(5^1), s = 120 = [(3^21)*(4^21)*(5^21)]/[(31)*(41)*(51)]. sn = 12060 = n. So 60 is in the sequence.


MATHEMATICA

r[s_, n_, f_] := Catch[If[n == 1, s == 1, Block[{p, e}, Do[e = 1; While[ Mod[n, p^e] == 0, r[s*(p^(e+1)  1)/(p1), n/p^e, p] && Throw@True; e++], {p, Select[Divisors@n, f < # &]}]]; False]];
spoofQ[n_] := r[1/2/n, n, 1] && DivisorSigma[1, n] != 2;
perfectQ[n_] := DivisorSigma[1, n] == 2*n;
