 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS An infinite coprime sequence defined by recursion. - Michael Somos, Mar 14 2004 This is the special case k=3 of sequences with exact mutual k-residues. In general, a(1)=k+1 and a(n)=min{m | m>a(n-1), mod(m,a(i))=k, i=1,...,n-1}. k=1 gives Sylvester's sequence A000058 and k=2 Fermat sequence A000215. - Seppo Mustonen, Sep 04 2005 REFERENCES N. J. A.
