Is a search for aliquot 3cycles feasible?
From Perfect, Amicable and Sociable Numbers by Song Y. Yan comes this, from the chapter Algrebraic Rules for Aliquot kCycles:

Heuristics gives O(1/u) probability for each p1,p2,p3 number to be prime for fixed v and O(1/v) for p. So the probability that you will find a chain is (assume that these p,p1,p2,p3 are primes "almost" indepedently) O(1/(u^3*v)) summing this for all (u,v) pairs (use that 2u+1==0 mod v) gives a finite (small) value. This also shows that if there is no chain for very small u,v pairs then it is a hopeless search. Last fiddled with by R. Gerbicz on 20130203 at 01:49

Will all aliquot 3cycles have to meet those criteria? If not what criteria would they meet?

so is there anything that can be said of v in this situation ? n ? ( and yes I know n could simplify it more, or at least make it down to one variable) Last fiddled with by science_man_88 on 20130207 at 13:36

is what I get reducing to just n in all equations.
