COMMENTS

Interleaving of A007539 and A088912.

For even n, a(n) is a multiply perfect number; for odd n it is a hemiperfect number.

Note that 1 is the only number with abundancy 1 and 2 is the only number with abundancy 3/2. For k >= 3 it is not known whether there are no or finitely many or infinitely many numbers with abundancy k/2. Also it is not known whether a(n) < a(n+1) always holds.

On the Riemann Hypothesis (RH), a(n) > exp(exp(n/(2*exp(gamma)))), where gamma = 0.5772156649... is the Euler-Mascheroni constant (A001620).

FORMULA

a(2n) = A007539(n), a(2n+1) = A088912(n), n > 0.

EXAMPLE

a(7) = 4320 since sigma(4320) = 15120 = 7/2*4320 and 4320 is the smallest m such that sigma(m)/m = 7/2.
