COMMENTS

Let k>=1. In the multiplicative basis Q^(k)={p^(k+1)^j, p runs A000040, j=0,1,...} every positive integer m has unique factorization of the form m=Prod{q is in Q^(k)}q^(m_q), where m_q is in {0,1,...,k}. In particular, in the case of k=1, we have the unique factorization over distinct terms of A050376. Notice that the standard prime basis is the limiting for k tending to infinity, and, by the definition, Q^(infinity)=A000040. Number d is called a k-divisor of m if the exponents d_q in its factorization in basis Q^(k) do not exceed m_q. A number m is called k-perfect if it equals to the sum of its proper positive k-divisors. Conjecture. a(11)=0. Note that we also know n-perfect numbers for n=12,14,15,16 and 18.

FORMULA

m = Prod{q is in Q^(k)}q^(m_q) is k-perfect number iff Prod{q is in Q^(k)}(q^((m_q)+1)-1)/(q-1)=2*m.

EXAMPLE

In case of n=2, we have the basis ("2-primes"): 2,3,5,7,8,11,13,...By the formula, we construct from the left m and from the right 2*m. By the condition, m begins from "2-prime" 8. From the right we have 8+1=3^2, therefore from the left we have 8*3^2 and from the right 3^2*(3^3-1)/(3-1)=3^2*13. Thus from the left it should be 8*3^2*13 and from the right 3^2*13*14. Finally, from the left we obtain m=8*3^2*13*7=6552 and from the right we have 2*m=3^2*13*14*8. By the construction, it is the smallest 2-perfect number of the required form. Thus a(2)=6552.
