%N Amicable numbers.

%C 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.

%C 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.

%C Theorem: If the three numbers p = 3*(2^(n-1)) - 1, q = 3*(2^n) - 1 and r = 9*(2^(2n-1)) - 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

%C The first time a pair ordered by its first element is not adjacent is x = 63020, y = 76084 which correspond to a(17) and a(23), respectively. - _Omar E. Pol_, Jun 22 2015

%C For amicable pairs see A259180 and also A259933. - _Omar E. Pol_, Jul 15 2015

%C First differs from A259180 (amicable pairs) at a(18). - _Omar E. Pol_, Jun 01 2017

%C Sierpinski (1964), page 176, mentions Erdos's work on the number of pairs of amicable numbers <= x. - _N. J. A. Sloane_, Dec 27 2017
