This comment is about the three sequences A001034, A060793, A056866: The Feit-Thompson theorem says that a finite group with odd order is solvable, hence all numbers in this sequence are even. - Ahmed Fares (ahmedfares(AT)my-deja.com), May 08 2001 [Corrected by Isaac Saffold, Aug 09 2021]

The primitive elements are A257146. These are also the primitive elements of A056866. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Jan 19 2017

Conjecture: This is a subsequence of A083207 (Zumkeller numbers). Verified for n <= 156. A fast provisional test was used, based on Proposition 17 from Rao/Peng JNT paper (see A083207). For those few cases where the fast test failed (such as 2588772 and 11332452) the comprehensive (but much slower) test by T. D. Noe at A083207 was used for result confirmation. - Ivan N. Ianakiev, Jan 11 2020

From M. Farrokhi D. G., Aug 11 2020: (Start)

The conjecture is not true. The smallest and the only counterexample among the first 457 terms of the sequence is a(175) = 138297600.

On the other hand, the orders of sporadic simple groups are Zumkeller. And with the exception of the smallest two orders 7920 and 95040, the odd part of the other orders are also Zumkeller. (End)

Every term in this sequence is divisible by 4*p*q, where p and q are distinct odd primes. - Isaac Saffold, Oct 24 2021
