- Hi, Dr. Broadhurst,

I finally found an acceptable argument for "why

odd-perfect numbers don't exist". check it out!

www.oddperfectnumbers.com I posted the final

draft at 6:15 today, my time (Aurora, IL 60506).

Sincerely, Bill

No. Among other things you appear to assume that

gcd((p+1)/2,Q^2) = 1

gcd(p,sigma(Q^2))= 1

so you continue to ignore Jack's careful tuition:

p=22021;Q=3003;

print([gcd((p+1)/2,Q^2),gcd(p,sigma(Q^2))])

[11011, 22021]

and mine:

p=-127;Q=13167;

print([gcd((p+1)/2,Q^2),gcd(p,sigma(Q^2))])

[63, 127]

Wann wird man je verstehn?
