Definition

A pseudoperfect number is a natural number such that equals the sum of a subset of the set of all its proper positive divisors. If that subset is the whole set of proper positive divisors, then is a perfect number.

  • Perfect number: This requires to be precisely equal to the sum of all its positive proper divisors.
  • Quasiperfect number: This requires to be precisely equal to the sum of all its positive proper nontrivial divisors.
