Abstract: Whether or not a relatively prime pair of amicable numbers exists is still an open question. In this paper some necessary conditions for $ m$ and $ n$ to be a pair of odd relatively prime amicable numbers are proved. In particular, lower bounds for $ m$, $ n$, $ mn$ and the number of prime divisors of $ mn$ are established. The arguments are based on an extensive case study carried out on the CDC 6400 at the Temple University Computing Center.
