The triple 171078830, 171078831, 171078832 was apparently found by Laurent Hodges and Michael Reid in 1995.
The starting term of the smallest consecutive 4tuple of abundant numbers is at most 141363708067871564084949719820472453374  Bruno Mishutka (bruno.mishutka(AT)googlemail.com), Nov 01 2007
Paul Erdős showed that there are two absolute constants c1, c2 such that for all large n there are at least c1 log log log n but not more than c2 log log log n consecutive abundant numbers less than n.  Bruno Mishutka (bruno.mishutka(AT)googlemail.com), Nov 01 2007
The term a(0) = 0 is included to avoid the warning messages triggered by sequences with fewer than four terms.  N. J. A. Sloane, Nov 07 2007
