In 1973, Erdős proved that a positive proportion of numbers are not of the form σ(n) − n, the sum of the proper divisors of n. We prove the analogous result where σ is replaced with the sum-of-unitary-divisors function σ∗ (which sums divisors d of n such that (d, n/d) = 1), thus solving a problem of te Riele from 1976. We also describe a fast algorithm for(More)
In 1973, Erdős proved that a positive proportion of numbers are untouchable; that is, not of the form s(n), where s(n) := σ(n)−n is the sum of the proper divisors of n. We investigate the analogous question where σ is replaced with similar divisor functions, such as the unitary sum-of-divisors function σ∗ (which sums those divisors d of n co-prime to n/d).(More)
