# How to compute numbers rich in divisors

I vaguely remember there is a notion of numbers rich in divisors, i.e. (number of divisors of N)/N is comparatively large. What's their name? Given a number M, how could I find such a number in its neighbourhood?

Primorials $p_n \#$ have quite some divisors. –  draks ... Sep 24 '12 at 10:52

This might be interesting: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Highly_composite_number

Moreover if you care about sums: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abundant_number

wow I never knew pure mathematicians even studied these things. The names themselves are funny enough. –  Xiaowen Li Sep 24 '12 at 11:48
