Aliquot sequences
(with leading term < 10,000)
There are other pages related to aliquot sequences, and maintained by:
Note that the seven sequences 276, 552, 564, 660, 966, 1074 and 1134 are pursued by Paul Zimmermann.
Click here to have a status for
these sequences or contact Paul Zimmermann for obtaining more uptodate information.
Early 2003, I decided to carry on the work done by Juan L.
Varona and pursue and maintain all other open ending aliquot
sequences with leader < 10,000. Here are some stats about these sequences at that time as well as today.
A comprehensive table for all open ending sequences from 1464 to 9852
(with links to sequence files) may be found here. Please contact
me if you want to reserve some sequence, some factorization or report any result.

March 24, 2010 : The mean size of the terms passed beyond 140 digits.
November 14, 2009 : The mean index passed beyond 1650.
November 13, 2009 : The largest term has reached 170 digits. (Mersenne Forum on sequence 4788)
September 29, 2009 : Sequence 1560 acquired the downdriver at height 142 digits (index 1650).
This is a new record for the height of a downdriver capture.
September 20, 2009 : The largest term has reached 165 digits. (Mersenne Forum on sequence 4788)
March 5, 2009 : The mean size of the terms passed beyond 135 digits.

January 13, 2007 : Benoît ChevallierMames acquired the downdriver on sequence 9684 at height 133 digits (index 1234).
This is a new record for the height of a downdriver capture.
November 21, 2006 : Sequence 1578 became the longuest aliquot sequence ever computed.
Previous record was sequence 389508 with index 7135.
(As of January 2008 this is no more a record since sequence 389508 reached index 8000 !)

Sequence 1578 is now the longest one whose leader is less than 10,000.
April 4, 2006 : Sequence 1578 acquired the downdriver at height 132 digits (index 4359). This establishes a new record for the height of a downdriver capture.

February 22, 2005 : Mark Hudson got the downdriver on sequence 3678 at index 1396 with 110 digits.
Sequence reached a maximum at index 1398 with 111 digits, and decreased down to 23 digits at index 1868 on March 15, 2005.
It then rapidly raised up to more than 100 digits at index beyond 2600.
February 20, 2005 : The mean index passed beyond 1300.
February 20, 2005 : Sequence 1578 got the downdriver (2^1 * 3^0 * ...) at index 1185 (110 digits)
and decreased up to index 1868 (5 digits) where it reached the value 56,440.
Sequence 56,440 which was unfinished can be removed from tables as it is now linked to sequence 1578.
Also, a new record for the greatest descent of an unfinished sequence has been established (from 111 to 5 digits).
January 24, 2005 : The largest index passed beyond 5700.
January 14, 2005 : The largest term has reached 130 digits (thanks to Don Leclair).
January 14, 2005 : The lowest index has reached 500 (thanks to Don Leclair).

January 3, 2005 : The largest term has reached 125 digits.
November 24, 2004 : The mean size of the terms passed beyond 110.
November 16, 2004 : The mean index passed beyond 1250.
November 16, 2004 : Half of the sequences have reached 110 digits or more.
September 28, 2004 : The largest term has reached 120 digits.
