%N Deficient numbers whose aliquot sequence is deficient, abundant, deficient, ..., etc.

%C All larger members of an amicable pair (A002046) belong to this sequence.

%C Also deficient members of the sociable quadruple represented in A222977 are here.

%C Starting at k=3, I found 1, 9, 28, 93, 266, 774, 2821 terms up to 10^k.

%e The aliquot sequence 284->220->284->... has the requested form, so 284 is here.

%e 2122 is here too, since its aliquot sequence is 2122->1064->1336->1184->1210->... .

%o (PARI) isAmicable(n)={my(a=sigma(n)-n); (a<>n) && (sigma(a)-a)==n;} \\ from A063990

%o isSociableADAD(n)={my(a=sigma(n)-n); if (!a, return (0)); my(b=sigma(a)-a); if(! b, return (0)); my(c=sigma(b)-b); if (!c, return (0)); my(d=sigma(c)-c); if (d != n, return (0)); ((n>a) && (a<b) && (b>c) && (c<n)) || ((n<a) && (a>b) && (b<c) && (c>n));}

%o isok(n) = {my(oldn = n); my(newn = sigma(oldn) - oldn); my(dir = sign(newn - oldn)); if (!dir || (dir > 0), return (0)); oldn = newn; while (1, newn = sigma(oldn) - oldn; ndir = sign(newn - oldn); if (!ndir || (ndir == dir), return (0)); if (isAmicable(oldn), return(1)); if (isSociableADAD(oldn), return(1)); oldn = newn; dir = ndir;);}
