 Definition: 
\A*bun"dant\, a. [OE. (h)abundant, aboundant, F.
abondant, fr. L. abudans, p. pr. of abundare. See {Abound}.]
Fully sufficient; plentiful; in copious supply; -- followed
by in, rarely by with. ``Abundant in goodness and truth.''
--Exod. xxxiv. 6.

{Abundant number} (Math.), a number, the sum of whose aliquot
   parts exceeds the number itself. Thus, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, the
   aliquot parts of 12, make the number 16. This is opposed
   to a {deficient} number, as 14, whose aliquot parts are 1,
   2, 7, the sum of which is 10; and to a {perfect} number,
   which is equal to the sum of its aliquot parts, as 6,
   whose aliquot parts are 1, 2., 3.

Syn: Ample; plentiful; copious; plenteous; exuberant;
     overflowing; rich; teeming; profuse; bountiful; liberal.
     See {Ample}.
