%C A084127(a(n)) < A084126(a(n))*2; subsequence of A001358; A001248 is a subsequence.

%C Odd composite integers which do not have a representation as the sum of an even number of consecutive integers. For instance, 27 is not in the sequence because it has a representation as the sum of an even number of consecutive integers (2+3+4+5+6+7). 35 is in the sequence because it does not have such a representation. - _Andrew Plewe_, May 14 2007

%C Decker & Moree prove that this sequence has (x log 4)/(log x)^2 + O(x/(log x)^3) members up to x. - _Charles R Greathouse IV_, Jul 07 2016

%e 21=3*7 is not a term, as 7>3*2=6.
