COMMENTS

a(66) is the first term at which this sequence differs from A119848.
A number N is called a prime factorization palindrome (PFP) if all its prime factors, taking into account their multiplicities, can be arranged in a row with central symmetry (see example). It is easy to see that every PFPnumber is either a square or a product of a square and a prime. In particular, the sequence contains all primes.
Numbers which are both palindromes (A002113) and PFP are 1,2,3,4,5,7,9,11,44,99,101,... (see A265641).
If n is in the sequence, so is n^k for all k >= 0.  Altug Alkan, Dec 11 2015
The sequence contains all perfect numbers except 6 (cf. A000396).  Don Reble, Dec 12 2015
Equivalently, numbers that have at most one prime factor with odd multiplicity.  Robert Israel, Feb 03 2016

FORMULA

lim A(x)/pi(x) = zeta(2) where A(x) is the number of a(n) <= x and pi is A000720.


EXAMPLE

44 is a member, since 44=2*11*2.
180 is a member, since 180=2*3*5*3*2.


MAPLE

N:= 1000: # to get all terms <= N
P:= [1, op(select(isprime, [2, seq(i, i=3..N, 2)]))]:
sort([seq(seq(p*x^2, x=1..floor(sqrt(N/p))), p=P)]); # Robert Israel, Feb 03 2016


MATHEMATICA

M = 200; P = Join[{1}, Select[Join[{2}, Range[3, M, 2]], PrimeQ]]; Sort[ Flatten[Table[Table[p x^2, {x, 1, Floor[Sqrt[M/p]]}], {p, P}]]] (* JeanFrançois Alcover, Apr 09 2019, after Robert Israel *)
