Colossally Abundant Number

In mathematics, a colossally abundant number (sometimes abbreviated as CA) is a natural number that, in a particular rigorous sense, has many divisors. Formally, a number n is colossally abundant if and only if there is an ε > 0 such that for all k > 1,

where σ denotes the sum-of-divisors function. The first few colossally abundant numbers are 2, 6, 12, 60, 120, 360, 2520, 5040, ... (sequence A004490 in OEIS); all colossally abundant numbers are also superabundant numbers, but the converse is not true.

Famous quotes containing the words number and/or abundant:

    This nightmare occupied some ten pages of manuscript and wound off with a sermon so destructive of all hope to non-Presbyterians that it took the first prize. This composition was considered to be the very finest effort of the evening.... It may be remarked, in passing, that the number of compositions in which the word “beauteous” was over-fondled, and human experience referred to as “life’s page,” was up to the usual average.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Product of a myriad various minds and contending tongues, compact of obscure and minute association, a language has its own abundant and often recondite laws, in the habitual and summary recognition of which scholarship consists.
    Walter Pater (1839–1894)
