COMMENTS

According to Catalan's conjecture all aliquot sequences end in a prime followed by 1, a perfect number, a friendly pair or an aliquot cycle. Some sequences seem to be open ended and keep growing forever i.e. 276. Most sequences only go down (i.e. 10 - 8 - 7 - 1), so for most cases in this sequence, a(n) = n. The first number to achieve a significantly high peak is 138

EXAMPLE

a(24)=55 because the aliquot sequence starting at 24 is: 24 - 36 - 55 - 17 - 1 so the maximum peak of this sequence is 55.
