Amicable Numbers is an independent research project that uses Internet-connected computers to find new amicable pairs.
Current goal of the project is to find all amicable pairs with smallest member < 1020. All new findings are published regularly on the Amicable pairs list page. https://sech.me/ap
Though mathematics is not an experimental science, mathematicians often look for examples to test conjectures (which they then hope to prove). As the number of examples increases, so does (in a sense) their understanding of the distribution.
The goal is to collect all amicable numbers up to a very large limit. This data will facilitate theoretical research in the field: 1, 2, 3 to name a few examples. It will also help to improve understanding of the properties of Divisor function.
