### Improving the bound $q < n\sqrt{3}$ for an odd perfect number $N = {q^k}{n^2}$ given in Eulerian form

(Note: This was cross-posted from MSE.)
Let $N = {q^k}{n^2}$ be an odd perfect number given in Eulerian form (i.e., $q$ is prime with $q \equiv k \equiv 1 \pmod 4$ and $\gcd(q, n) = 1$).
Therefore, ...

### Solutions of $rad(\sigma(m))=2rad(m)$

For $m$ a positive integer greater than $1$, let $rad(m)$ be the product of all distinct primes dividing $m$. If $n$ is an odd perfect number (conjectured not to exist), one would have $\sigma(n)=2n$, ...

### An equation involving perfect numbers

Let $s,x_1,x_2,\cdots, x_s$ be natural numbers not neccesarily distinct.
I am interested in solving the equation $$(x_1+x_2+\cdots +x_s)^s=2^s(x_1\cdot x_2\cdots x_s)^2$$
Some Notes:
I have found ...

### Who is attributed with the conjecture that every multiply-perfect number greater than $1$ is even?

I know that Descartes is considered to be the first to ask whether or not odd perfect numbers exist ($n$ such that $\sigma(n)=2n$, where $\sigma(n)$ is the sum of divisors of $n$), and he also ...

### Determine whether if $n$ is a primitive pseudoperfect (semiperfect) number, then $\sigma(n)<2^{\sigma_0(n)}$

Determine whether if $n$ is a primitive pseudoperfect (semiperfect) number, then $\sigma(n)<2^{\sigma_0(n)}$.
$\sigma_k(n)$ is the division function and $\sigma(n)=\sigma_1(n)$. A number is ...

### Integers n such that sigma(n)=omega(n)n and omega(n) divides n

Are there other integers $n$ than even perfect numbers such that $\sigma(n)=\omega(n)n$ and $\omega(n)\vert n$?
Thanks in advance.
