- Dear Maxmilian,

Let me clarify;

A 104016 is the sequence of Devaraj Numbers

which are also Carmichael

Numbers and A 104017 is that of Devaraj Numbers which are NOT CNs. Both

display a property of

Let me clarify; A 104016 represents Devaraj numbers which are CNs and

A104017 represents DNs which are not CNs. best illustrated by following

numerical examples

Let us take 561, the smallest CN.

561=3*11*17;

My conjecture about this is that 2*560/10*16 is

an integer ( and so it is =7).

Now let us take the smallest in the seq A 104017 viz 11305=5*7*17*19

My conjecture: 4*11304*11304/6*16*18 is an integer and so it is.

As regards my site if it is not accessible I wd be only too happy to send

the relevant file as an attachment/

Trust I have made myself clear.

As far as I understood, the D-numbers are /defined/ as those for which this is an integer; your conjecture says that this is a CN, but it isn't.
