Hunting Odd Perfect Numbers

by

Professor John McCleary
Vassar College

October 1, 2001
4:15 pm
Bailey Hall 201


Abstract:

The notion of a perfect number was known to the ancients. In this talk I will describe how we can restrict the kind of number that might qualify as an odd perfect number. We can know a lot about such integers without knowing a single example! Or are there any?

There will be a dinner with Professor McCleary the previous evening, Sunday September 30, at 6 PM. The dinner is free for Union students who sign up. If interested, contact Bill Zwicker at zwickerw@union.edu.
