COMMENTS

Let N = q^k*n^2 be an odd perfect number with special prime q. If k = 1, it follows that sigma(q^k) < n. Since 2n^2/sigma(q^k) = gcd(n^2, sigma(n^2)), if k = 1 then we have gcd(n^2, sigma(n^2)) > 2n > sigma(n) (since n is deficient, because q^k n^2 is perfect). [See (Dris, 2017)]

FORMULA

If N = q^k*n^2 is an odd perfect number with special prime q, then it is easy to show that sigma(n^2)/q^k = 2n^2/sigma(q^k) = gcd(n^2,sigma(n^2)). From the last equation, it is easy to prove that D(n^2)/s(q^k) = 2s(n^2)/D(q^k) = gcd(n^2,sigma(n^2)), where D(x)=2xsigma(x) is the deficiency of x and s(x)=sigma(x)x is the sum of the aliquot divisors of x.
Note that, if k = 1, then sigma(q^k) < n, from which it would follow that q^k < n. [See (Dris, 2017).] Therefore, if k = 1, we have that N = q^k n^2 < n^3. Using Ochem and Rao's lower bound for an odd perfect number, we get n^3 > N > 10^1500, from which we obtain n > 10^500. [See (Ochem and Rao, 2012).]
Thus, if k = 1, we have the lower bound sigma(n^2)/q^k = 2n^2/sigma(q^k) = gcd(n^2, sigma(n^2)) > 2n > n > 10^500 which significantly improves on the corresponding result in (Chen and Chen, 2014).
The assertion k = 1 is known as the DescartesFrenicleSorli Conjecture on odd perfect numbers.


EXAMPLE

a(1) = 693 is in the sequence because gcd((693)^2, sigma((693)^2)) = gcd(480249, sigma(480249)) > sigma(693), where sigma(480249) = 917301 = 3*7*11^2*19^2, and 480249 = 3^4*7^2*11^2, therefore gcd(480249, sigma(480249)) = 3*7*11^2 = 2541 but sigma(693) = 1248.
