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

Does anyone else find their intersection with the squarefree numbers
