COMMENTS

If 2^p-1 is a Mersenne prime greater than 3 then m = 15*2^(p-1) is in the sequence. Because sigma(sigma(m)) = sigma(15*2^(p-1)) = sigma(24*(2^p-1)) = 60*2^p = 8*(15*2^(p-1)) = 8*m. So for n>1 15/2*(A000668(n)+1) is in the sequence. 60, 240, 960, 61440, 983040, 3932160, 16106127360 and 1729382256910270464042 are such terms. - Farideh Firoozbakht, Dec 05 2005
