Hello,
one obvious construction of elements of A is the following:
If n is perfect and q a prime > n, then nq is in A (and its abundance is
2n). This accounts for the abundances 12, 56 and 992.
A similar construction takes into consideration that all known perfect
numbers have the form n = 2^(p-1) * (2^p - 1):
If 2^(p-1) * (2^p - 1) is perfect, then 2^(p-1) * (2^p - 1)^3 lies in A.
This accounts for the numbers 54 and 1372 in A.
I have not had the time to check whether there are any exceptions
(besides 34155) to these patterns - if not, this would really make 34155
very special!
Regards,
Jens
