 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS It has been shown that (1) all known betrothed pairs are of opposite parity and (2) if a and b are a betrothed pair, and if a < b are of the same parity, then a > 10^10. See the reference for the Hagis & Lord paper. Can it be shown that all betrothed pairs are of opposite parity? - Harvey P. Dale, Apr 07 2013 From David A. Corneth, Jan 26 2019: (Start) Let (k, m) be a betrothed pair. Then sigma(k) = sigma(m). Proof: k = sigma(m) - m - 1 (1) m = sigma(k) - k - 1 (2) Partially substituting (1) in (2) gives m = sigma(k) - (sigma(m) - m - 1) - 1 = sigma(k) - sigma(m) + m + 1 - 1 which simplifies to sigma(k) = sigma(m). QED. If k and m are odd then they are both square. If k and m are even then they are square or twice a square (not necessarily both in the same family). Proof: sigma(k) is odd iff k is a square or twice a square (cf. A028982). Hence if k isn't of that form (and sigma(k) is even) then the parity of sigma(k) - k - 1 is odd for odd k and even for even k. If k is an odd square then sigma(k) - k - 1 is odd. If k is twice a square or an even square then sigma(k) - k - 1 is even. QED. Using inspection and the results above, if k and m are a betrothed pair of the same parity, the minimal term is > 2*10^14.
