COMMENTS
The values of sigma(k)/k are 1, 2, 2, 8/3, 8/3, 96/35, 32/9, 32/9, 32/7. Note that these values are nondecreasing. Is that always the case? In the table below, all numbers in the same row are friendly to each other.
a(10) <= 27477725184. a(11) <= 88071903612. a(12) <= A027687(12). - Donovan Johnson, Aug 06 2012
For n>1, these are the smallest numbers to appear consecutively (n-1) times in A050973. - Michel Marcus, Jan 28 2014
