COMMENTS
The list contains all numbers of the form 2^w*3^u for w > 0, u >= 0. But it also contains 120, 200, 240 and 400. It contains m! for all m because the symmetric groups have integral character tables. By taking direct products, we get all numbers of the form m! * 2^w * 3^u, w > 0, u >= 0. The 200 comes from a semidirect product of an elementary group of order 25 with a quaternion group of order 8, with fixed-point-free action (a Frobenius group). - Derek Holt
From Eric M. Schmidt, Feb 22 2013: (Start)
A group of order k has integral character table iff g^m is conjugate to g for all group elements g and all m coprime to k.
A necessary condition for a group G to have an integral character table is for G/G' to be an elementary Abelian 2-group. Therefore, by the Feit-Thompson theorem, the only odd term in this sequence is 1.
R. Gow proved (see link) that no prime greater than 5 can divide the order of a solvable group with integral character table. (End)
