I know nothing. Therefore, you can ask me anything, but I cannot promise that I will be able to answer everything.

If $N=q^k n^2$ is an odd perfect number and $q = k$, why does this bound not imply $q > 5$?
Let $\mathbb{N}$ denote the set of natural numbers (i.e., positive integers). A number $N \in \mathbb{N}$ is said to be perfect if $\sigma(N)=2N$, where $\sigma=\sigma_{1}$ is the classical sum of divisors.  For example, $\sigma(6)=1+2+3+6=2\cdot{6}$, so th...

A question on the Euler prime of odd perfect numbers
(Note:  This post was copied verbatim from this MSE link .) A number $N \in \mathbb{N}$ is said to be perfect if $\sigma(N)=2N$, where $\sigma=\sigma_{1}$ is the classical sum-of-divisors function.  For example, $\sigma(6)=1+2+3+6=2\cdot{6}$, so that $6$ is...

Paolo Starni's "On Dris Conjecture about Odd Perfect Numbers"
Paolo Starni recently uploaded the preprint titled " On Dris Conjecture about Odd Perfect Numbers ", with details below: Abstract The Euler's form of odd perfect numbers, if any, is $n = {{\pi}^{\alpha}} N^2$, where $\pi$ is prime, $\gcd(\pi, N) = 1$ and $\...

If $N = qn^2$ is an odd perfect number, is it possible to have $q + 1 = \sigma(n)$?
(Note:  This blog post was pulled from this [ MO link ].) The title says it all. Question If $N = qn^2$ is an odd perfect number, is it possible to have $q + 1 = \sigma(n)$? Heuristic From the Descartes spoof, with quasi-Euler prime $q_1$: $$n_1 = 3003 < \s...

On the condition $n < \sigma(q^k)$ where $N = q^k n^2$ is an odd perfect number given in Eulerian form
Let $N = q^k n^2$ be an odd perfect number with Euler prime $q$. Brown recently announced a proof for the inequality $q < n$, and a partial proof that $q^k < n$ holds "in many cases".  The inequality $q^k < n$ was conjectured by Dris in his M. Sc. thesis. N...

Building on work from previous MSE question 2306650 (Re: Odd Perfect Numbers)
(Note:  This post builds on work from this previous MSE question .) Let $\sigma(N)$ denote the sum of the divisors of the natural number $N$.  If $\sigma(N)=2N$ and $N$ is odd, then $N$ is called an odd perfect number .  Denote the abundancy index  $I$ of $...

If $N=q^k n^2$ is an odd perfect number, does $q \leq 97$ imply that $I(q^k) + I(n^2) \leq 2.99$?
(Note:  This blog post was copied verbatim from this MSE question .) Let $\sigma(N)$ denote the sum of the divisors of the natural number $N$.  If $\sigma(N)=2N$ and $N$ is odd, then $N$ is called an odd perfect number .  Denote the abundancy index $I$ of $...

If $q^k n^2$ is an odd perfect number, then $k$ is bounded.
If $k$ is arbitrarily large in the equations $$\frac{\sigma(n^2)}{q^k}=\frac{2n^2}{\sigma(q^k)}=\gcd(n^2,\sigma(n^2))=\frac{2n^2 - \sigma(n^2)}{\sigma(q^{k-1})}$$ then $$\lim_{k \to \infty}{\frac{\sigma(n^2)}{q^k}}=\lim_{k \to \infty}{\frac{2n^2}{\sigma(q^k...
