E100 -- De numeris amicabilibus
(On Amicable Numbers)
(based on Jordan Bell's abstract)
Euler describes the work that European mathematicians have done on amicable numbers and shows how to find pairs of amicable numbers. He gives the first 30 pairs
of which some, but not all, were found with his method.
