Problem 211: Divisor Square Sum
(see projecteuler.net/problem=211)
For a positive integer n, let \sigma(n) be the sum of the squares of its divisors. For example,
\sigma^2(10) = 1 + 4 + 25 + 100 = 130.
Find the sum of all n, 0 < n < 64,000,000 such that \sigma^2(n) is a perfect square.
My Algorithm
My approach works like a sieve:
- allocate enough memory for 64000000 numbers, each 64 bit (=> 512 MByte)
- fill it with zeros
- for each number 0 < i < 64000000: add i*i to each cell that is a multiple of i
- when done, check each cell whether it is a perfect square
However, its memory consumption was much, much higher than any of my other solutions.
Therefore I decided to move the algorithm to a new function
processSlice
which works a bit smarter:instead of processing everything at once, it only looks at all numbers [
from, to
].Reducing
to - from
to about 4 million doesn't slow down the algorithm at all.But I wanted to keep it below 20 MByte (for no good reason ...) and chose a
sliceSize = 2000000
which takes about 14 seconds (40% slower).
Alternative Approaches
You can play around with prime factorization. This should be a bit faster at the cost of probably doubling the code size.
Interactive test
You can submit your own input to my program and it will be instantly processed at my server:
This is equivalent toecho 100 | ./211
Output:
(this interactive test is still under development, computations will be aborted after one second)
My code
… was written in C++11 and can be compiled with G++, Clang++, Visual C++. You can download it, too.
#include <iostream>
#include <vector>
#include <cmath>
// determine the sum of all numbers between "from" and "to" (inclusive both) which match the problem statement
unsigned long long processSlice(unsigned int from, unsigned int to)
{
std::vector<unsigned long long> sumSquares(to - from + 1, 0);
// like a prime sieve: add square of all divisors
for (unsigned long long i = 1; i <= to; i++)
{
// position of smallest multiple of i >= from
auto pos = (from / i) * i;
if (pos < from)
pos += i;
// add i^2 to all multiples of i
for (; pos <= to; pos += i)
sumSquares[pos - from] += i*i;
}
// find all sums that are perfect squares
unsigned int sum = 0;
for (size_t i = 0; i < sumSquares.size(); i++)
{
auto number = i + from;
auto current = sumSquares[i];
// compute integer square root
unsigned long long root = sqrt(current);
// iff root^2 = current then it's a perfect square
if (root * root == current)
sum += number;
}
return sum;
}
int main()
{
unsigned int limit = 64000000;
std::cin >> limit;
// how many number should be analyzed at once (=> influences memory consumption)
unsigned int sliceSize = 2000000;
// total sum
unsigned int sum = 0;
// start of current slice
unsigned int from = 1;
while (from < limit)
{
// end of current slice
auto to = from + sliceSize - 1;
if (to >= limit)
to = limit;
// process current slice
sum += processSlice(from, to);
// next slice
from = to + 1;
}
// print result
std::cout << sum << std::endl;
return 0;

Benchmark
The correct solution to the original Project Euler problem was found in 14.6 seconds on an Intel® Core™ i7-2600K CPU @ 3.40GHz.
Peak memory usage was about 18 MByte.
(compiled for x86_64 / Linux, GCC flags: -O3 -march=native -fno-exceptions -fno-rtti -std=gnu++11 -DORIGINAL
)
See here for a comparison of all solutions.
Note: interactive tests run on a weaker (=slower) computer. Some interactive tests are compiled without -DORIGINAL
