for distinct odd primes p, ql9 ..., qt, with p = a = 1 (mod 4). (We shall always assume this form for the prime factor decomposition of N) . Many writers have found conditions which must be satisfied by the exponents 23i» ...5 2(3t» and it is our intention here to extend some of those results. We shall find it necessary to call on a number of conditions of other types, some of which have only recently been found. These are outlined in Section 2. It is known (see ) that we cannot have ^ E 1…

### NONEXISTENCE OF ODD PERFECT NUMBERS OF A CERTAIN FORM NONEXISTENCE OF ODD PERFECT NUMBERS OF A CERTAIN FORM

Write N = pαq1 1 · · · q 2βk k , where p, q1, . . . , qk are distinct odd primes and p ≡ α ≡ 1 (mod 4). An odd perfect number, if it exists, must have this form. McDaniel proved in 1970 that N is not

It is proved that if βj ≡ 1 (mod 3) orβj ≡ 2 (mod 5) for all j, 1 ≤ j ≤ k, then 3|n is perfect, where σ(n) denotes the sum of the positive divisors of n.

### Necessary Conditions For the Non-existence of Odd Perfect Numbers

We start with a result showing most odd cubes cannot be perfect numbers (see Theorem 1). Then we give a new proof of a special case of a result of Iannucci (see [IAN]) that shows that none of the

### Quasiperfect Numbers With the Same Exponent

A general lower bound for the smallerst prime factor of quasiperfect numbers is found and some upper bounds concerning quas Piperfect numbers of the form $N=m^2$ with $m$ squarefree are found.

### On the divisibility of odd perfect numbers by a high power of a prime

We study some divisibility properties of multiperfect numbers. Our main result is: if $N=p_1^{\alpha_1}... p_s^{\alpha_s} q_1^{2\beta_1}... q_t^{2\beta_t}$ with $\beta_1, ..., \beta_t$ in some finite

### Solving the Odd Perfect Number Problem: Some Old and New Approaches

A perfect number is a positive integer $N$ such that the sum of all the positive divisors of $N$ equals $2N$, denoted by $\sigma(N) = 2N$. The question of the existence of odd perfect numbers (OPNs)
