It is 926.
In fact my search was done up to 10^5.
So how I can be sure that one number is unitary untouchable?
The numbers 2 3 4 5 7 for example looks like to to be untouchable but are
we sure that above 10^5 they never will be a solution of us(x)=n?
I tryed to monitor the difference between those numbers (2,3,5,7...) and
us(x) for very large x and even though this difference in average grows
linearly with x every so often some point goes out and became very close to
zero...
Is there any theoretical approach to determine the unitary untouchable
numbers?
Rgds and thanks. Felice

What is the sum of the (proper) unitary divisors of
102016 ? R.
