Annual Appeal: Today, Nov 11 2014, is the 4th anniversary of the launch of the new OEIS web site. 70,000 sequences have been added in these four years, all edited by volunteers. Please make a donation (tax deductible in the US) to help keep the OEIS running.

Factorization in S is not unique. See related sequences.

EXAMPLE

21 is of the form 4i+1, but it is not divisible by any smaller S-primes, so 21 is in the sequence.

MAPLE

N:= 1000: # to get all terms <= N

S:= {seq(4*i+1, i=1..floor((N-1)/4))}:

for n from 1 while n <= nops(S) do

  r:= S[n];

  S:= S minus {seq(i*r, i=2..floor(N/r))};
