Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Except for a(2)=2 and a(4)=4, all of the terms in the sequence are odd. This is because of the existence of a non-Abelian dihedral group of order 2n for each n>2.

FORMULA

n must be cubefree and its prime divisors must satisfy certain congruences.

Let the prime factorization of n be p1^e1...pr^er. Then n is in this sequence if ei<3 for all i and pi^k does not equal 1 (mod pj) for all i and j and 1 <= k <= ei. - T. D. Noe, Mar 25 2007

EXAMPLE

a(4)=4 because every group of order 4 is Abelian.

MATHEMATICA

okQ[n_] := Module[{f, lf, p, e, v}, f = FactorInteger[n]; lf = Length[f]; p = f[[All, 1]]; e = f[[All, 2]]; If[AnyTrue[e, # > 2&], Return[False]]; v = p^e; For[i = 1, i <= lf, i++, For[j = i+1, j <= lf, j++, If[Mod[v[[i]], p[[j]]]==1 || Mod[v[[j]], p[[i]]]==1, Return[False]]]]; Return[True]];

PROG
