Let N = q k n2 be an odd perfect number (hereinafter abbreviated as OPN)

given in Eulerian form (i.e. q k 1 (mod 4) and gcd(q, n) = 1). Suppose

(q)

(n)

that

=

. Then we know that:

n

q

q(q) = n(n).

Since gcd(q, n) = 1, then q | (n) and n | (q). Therefore, it follows that

(n)

(q)

and

are equal positive integers.

n

q

This is a contradiction, as:

Therefore, either:

(n)

<

n

which implies (q) < (n), or

(n)

(q)

<

,

q

n

which implies n < q, further implying Sorlis conjecture that k = 1.

From Part I [1], we know that n < q k = 1.

where I(x) =

(x)

is the abundancy index of x. In particular, we know that:

(q)

n<q

and that:

(n)

q

However, from Part I [1], we also know that:

(q)

(n)

<

n < q.

q

Hence, we have proved the following lemma:

Lemma 0.1. Let N = q k n2 be an OPN given in Eulerian form. If (n) (q),

(n)

(q)

then n < q if and only if

<

.

q

n

The contrapositive of:

(n) (q) n < q

is:

q < n (q) < (n).

Therefore, if q < n, it follows that:

(n)

(q)

<

.

n

q

However, from Part I [1], we also know that:

(n)

(q)

<

(q) < (n).

n

q

Consequently, we have proved the following lemma:

Lemma 0.2. Let N = q k n2 be an OPN given in Eulerian form. If q < n, then

(q)

(n)

(q) < (n) if and only if

<

.

n

q

Note that, if (q) < (n), then the best inequality that we could get relating

q and n is:

q+1

< n.

This is because the upper bound I(n) < 2 for the abundancy index of the

component n is rather crude.
