COMMENTS

Also smallest m to partition n into distinct divisors of m; highly abundant numbers are record values: a(i) < A002093(n) for 1<=i < A085443(n), A002093(n)=a(A085443(n)). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Jun 30 2003

FORMULA

It seems that lim n -> infinity a(n)/n*log(log(n))=C=0.6...

MATHEMATICA

nn=80; With[{s=Table[{n, DivisorSigma[1, n]}, {n, nn}]}, Transpose[ Flatten[ Table[ Select[s, #[[2]]>=i&, 1], {i, nn}], 1]][[1]]] (* Harvey P. Dale, Dec 28 2013 *)

PROG

(PARI) for(n=1, 150, s=1; while(sigma(s)<n, s++); print1(s, ", "))
