Sorry, but I don't exactly understand your question ?

OK, I'll do that in the next week !

And thank you !
I think you're right : 7^96 is now the longest n^i sequence !
Beautiful !

richs and kar_bon thank you too.
I'll update the web page in the next week !

yeah I was semi joking just thinking of PARI /GP that could be useful.

OK, I see.
The problem is that I have a very poor command of English.
So I often use machine translation.
You must have noticed it !
So I don't always understand some of the subtleties of some messages !

gd_barnes, thank you !

I saw you added higher bases, like 439 (?) and I don't know what reason you had, but my opinion is that 28 makes more sense than 439 or 10^x (6^n, 28^n or even 496^n can be seen as powers of perfect numbers, or "powers of drivers", in fact that was what "tickled" my interest for base 6 in the past).

OK, the web page is updated.
Thanks to gd_barnes, richs, kar_bon and LaurV for your calculations and proposals !

LaurV, I added base 28.
I think that's a good idea !
Besides, it's quite odd that there are only green and blue cells for the moment, but it must be a coincidence !

Some explanations

This web page (aliquot sequences that start on n^i) exists because we have an annoying question on this other web page : http://www.aliquotes.com/existence_s...ini_primes.htm (but sorry in french !).
To try to summarize the question in English :
Can there be an indefinitely growing aliquot sequence in which all terms would be composed of a finite number of prime numbers, but could have any powers ?
We think the answer to that question is "no", but we don't know how to tackle this problem ! However, we would like to get rid of this issue, because we have programs that may be running unnecessarily and are trying to find such aliquot sequences.
The basic idea is therefore to calculate the aliquot sequences that start on integer powers of prime numbers in a first step.
We try very small primes (2, 3, 5...), larger one (439) and a very large one (10^10+19).
We are trying to see if we could "notice" something in the behaviour of these aliquot sequences.
We also do some calculations with slightly composed numbers:
6, 10, 12, 28...
But later, if many people help us with the calculations, we would also like to add the bases with as many prime numbers as possible:
2*3, 2*3*5, 2*3*5*7, 2*3*5*7*11, 2*3*5*7*11*13, .............., and more generally p# with p=53 at least !
Thus, we will observe if the aliquot sequences behave very differently and especially which prime numbers appear in the decomposition of the successive terms of these aliquot sequences.

I hope my explanations are clear !

If I want to open 5 of them in the same time for comparisons or whatever stupid reason I may have, then I end up with 6 different browsers (including the initial one) floating around my monitors. There is also no way to right click it and tell what to do with the link (like copy it or open it in another place/tab/etc). This looks like a hacker site that deliberately hides the links, and functionally, it is a bit bothering when we want to open more (or all) sequences at once and have them in different tabs in the same browser (actually, impossible to do without heavily altering firefox behavior, because the js link is bypassing the ff's "Open links in tabs instead of new windows" settings).
No dev tools? copy the link from there ?
