>From my searches, odd perfect numbers seem to be still unresolved.

eg this from after deadline https://www.quantamagazine.org/mathematicians-open-a-new-front-on-an-ancient-number-problem-20200910/

Heuristic methods that just show OPN to be very unlikely such as https://web.archive.org/web/20061229094011/http://oddperfect.org/pomerance.html

do not in my opinion resolve the issue in the way required by the claim.


I therefore intend to judge the claim false unless someone sends me something to consider in the next couple of weeks that has potential to change my view.

Regards

Chris Randles
