Sequences with initial term up to 10,000, by Christophe Clavier.
Juan L. Varona's work on aliquot sequences examines sequences with start values up to 10000, and traces them to large composite values.
Aliquot sequences arise in iterating the sum-of-divisors function s. Bosma has calculated tables up to start value 50,000 and 80 digits.
Results and software from Paul Zimmermann, addressing the Catalan Conjecture and working on the difficult "Lehmer Five" sequences.
Statistics by Wolfgang Creyaufmueller, including many tables and links to factoring sites and software.
Observations on amicable pairs and their distribution, including Harshad and Happy Amicable pairs.
Cubes of Perfection
From Ivars Peterson's MathTrek column in MAA Online. Curious relationships satisfied by perfect numbers.
Multiply Perfect Numbers
Up-to-date information on multiperfect numbers and searchable database maintained by Achim Flammenkamp.
Odd Perfect Numbers - Missing Values
Status of various factorisations that would extend the known area of non-existence of odd perfect numbers, by Kevin Hare.
On a Generalization of Perfect Numbers
J. L. Pe introduces perfect numbers relative to an arithmetical function f. Under this scheme, the usual perfect numbers are just one among many species of "f-perfect numbers". Several open problems and examples of perfect number sets are given, as well as a few f-amicable pairs.
