It is a Smith number, since the sum of its digits (4) coincides with the sum of the digits of its prime factors.

It is a Harshad number since it is a multiple of its sum of digits (4).

It is a super Niven number, because it is divisible the sum of any subset of its (nonzero) digits.

It is a nude number because it is divisible by every one of its digits and also a Zuckerman number because it is divisible by the product of its digits.

4 is the 2-nd square number.

4 is the 2-nd centered triangular number.

It is a practical number, because each smaller number is the sum of distinct divisors of 4

4 is a deficient number, since it is larger than the sum of its proper divisors (3).

4 is a wasteful number, since it uses less digits than its factorization.

With its successor (5) it forms an eRAP, since the sums of their prime factors are consecutive (4 and 5).

With its predecessor (3) it forms an eRAP, since the sums of their prime factors are consecutive (3 and 4).

4 is an odious number, because the sum of its binary digits is odd.

The sum of its prime factors is 4 (or 2 counting only the distinct ones).

The product of its digits is 4, while the sum is 4.

The cubic root of 4 is about 1.5874010520.
