Sigma Function

$\map \sigma n$

Let $n$ be an integer such that $n \ge 1$.

The sigma function $\map \sigma n$ is defined on $n$ as being the sum of all the positive integer divisors of $n$.

That is:

$\displaystyle \map \sigma n = \sum_{d \mathop \divides n} d$

where $\displaystyle \sum_{d \mathop \divides n}$ is the sum over all divisors of $n$.

The $\LaTeX$ code for \(\map \sigma n\) is \map \sigma n .
