Abstract: An exhaustive search has yielded 236 amicable pairs of which the lesser number is smaller than , 57 pairs being new.

It has also yielded 9 new sociable groups of order 10 or less, of which the lesser number is smaller than ; the 9 sociable groups are all of order 4.

The sequence of iterates of the function starting with 276 has also been extended to 119 terms.
