COMMENTS

a(n) >= A104404(n). This can be proved using the characterization in A104404. Given an Abelian group G, the semidirect product G : <h>, where h^2 = 1 and hgh = g^(-1) for any g in G, is generated by involutions. There is also a semidirect product Q8 : C2 generated by involutions. So an involution-generated group G : C2 exists for any finite group G that has all subgroups normal, and it can be shown that they are all nonisomorphic.
