A127164 Integers whose aliquot sequences terminate by encountering the prime 7. Also known as the prime family 7. 4
7, 8, 10, 14, 20, 22, 34, 38, 49, 62, 75, 118, 148, 152, 169, 188, 213, 215 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



This sequence is complete only as far as the last term given, for the eventual fate of the aliquot sequence generated by 276 is not (yet) known.

Wolfgang Creyaufmueller, Aliquot sequences.


Define s(i)=sigma(i)-i=A000203(i)-i. Then if the aliquot sequence obtained by repeatedly applying the mapping i->s(i) terminates by encountering the prime 7 as a member of its trajectory, i is included in this sequence.


a(5)=20 because the fifth integer whose aliquot sequence terminates by encountering the prime 7 as a member of its trajectory is 20. The complete aliquot sequence generated by iterating the proper divisors of 15 is 20->22->14->10->8->7->1->0


s[n_] := DivisorSigma[1, n] - n; g[n_] := If[n > 0, s[n], 0]; Trajectory[n_] := Most[NestWhileList[g, n, UnsameQ, All]]; Select[Range[275], MemberQ[Trajectory[ # ], 7] &]
