```Looking at A004394, I can see that 130429015516799 is a member of the
sequence with sigma(n+1)/sigma(n) > 6.  Similarly,
9854961523502269526351999 for 7,
12334037514864599053024743931236692051903999 for 8,
6553386545032231213471815304698770482991672570850940874249785314181055999
for 9, and 1654561128226196128845909933761934649700488343804541949950770032612220138050084647974939320138356724706447331227979902261929221509759999
for 10.

I don't much like the notation d(n), which can be confused for A000005.
