COMMENTS

A pair of numbers x and y is called amicable if the sum of the proper divisors of either one is equal to the other. The smallest pair is x = 220, y = 284.
The sequence lists the amicable numbers in increasing order. Note that the pairs x, y are not adjacent to each other in the list. See also A002025 for the x's, A002046 for the y's.
Theorem: If the three numbers p = 3*(2^(n1))  1, q = 3*(2^n)  1 and r = 9*(2^(2n1))  1 are all prime where n >= 2, then p*q*(2^n) and r*(2^n) are amicable numbers. This 9th century theorem is due to Thabit ibn Kurrah (see for example, the History of Mathematics by David M. Burton, 6th ed., p. 510).  Mohammad K. Azarian, May 19 2008
