If you take the intersection of the zk numbers and the squarefree
numbers (in the same region), the intersection's max deltas will all
be multiples of 12. Their intersection contains no primes (since no
zk can be prime). The zk numbers are a special case of the
NP-Complete problem (the partition problem).
Does anyone else find their intersection with the squarefree numbers
interesting?
