In mathematics, a quasiperfect number is a natural number n for which the sum of all its divisors is equal to 2n + 1. No quasiperfect numbers have been found so far, but it has been shown that if any quasiperfect numbers exist, they must be greater than 10^35 and have at least seven distinct prime factors.

  1. I love technology, or its use, I do. But there is something to be said for just pure mental exploration, for investigation for its own purpose. Who knows if there'd be any kind of purpose for quasiperfect numbers or not. But i think it is fascinating that people are thinking about it anyway.
