Note on the Theory of Perfect Numbers
Authors: N. A. Carella
(Submitted on 8 Feb 2011)

A perfect number is a number whose divisors add up to twice the number
itself. The existence of odd perfect numbers is a millennia-old
unsolved problem. This note proposes a proof of the nonexistence of
odd perfect numbers. More generally, the same analysis seems to
generalize to a proof of the nonexistence of odd multiperfect numbers.
