A019293


Let sigma_m (n) be result of applying sumofdivisors function m times to n; call n (m,k)perfect if sigma_m (n) = k*n; sequence gives the (4,k)perfect numbers.

COMMENTS

Similarly to A019278, 2 and sigma(2) are both terms, and this can happen also for further iterations of sigma on known terms, thus providing new terms outside the current known range.  Michel Marcus, May 01 2017
Also it occurs that many divisors of A019278 are terms of this sequence.  Michel Marcus, May 28 2017

EXAMPLE

10 is a term because applying sigma four times we see that 10 > 18 > 39 > 168 > 120, and 120 = 12*10. So 10 is a (4,12)perfect number.
