COMMENTS

If m is in this sequence and 5 doesn't divide m then m is an odd Weird number. There are no other terms up to 2*10^9. Jud McCranie wrote: There are no terms between 2*10^9 and 6.5*10^9.

a(4) > 10^12. - Donovan Johnson, Dec 08 2011

a(4) > 10^13. - Giovanni Resta, Mar 29 2013

a(4) > 10^22. - Wenjie Fang, Jun 16 2014

Any term x of this sequence can be combined with any term y of A141548 to satisfy the property (sigma(x)+sigma(y))/(x+y) = 2, which is a necessary (but not sufficient) condition for two numbers to be amicable. - Timothy L. Tiffin, Sep 13 2016

EXAMPLE

a(1)=8925 because sigma(8925)=2*8925+6 and 8925 is the first odd number such that sigma(n)-2n=6.
