COMMENTS

Mersenne primes are solutions of sigma(x+1)  sigma(x) = x.
Numbers n such that antisigma(n) = antisigma(n+1), where antisigma(n) = the sum of the nondivisors of n that are between 1 and n. For example, antisigma(5) = 2 + 3 + 4 = 9; antisigma(6) = 4 + 5 = 9, so 5 is a term of the sequence.  Joseph L. Pe, Oct 22 2002
The next term, if it exists, must be greater than 5*10^8.  Martin Fuller, May 06 2007
a(5), if it exists, is greater than 10^13.  Giovanni Resta, Jul 30 2013
