COMMENTS

Unfortunately, it appears that the entries are all conjectural. I am not aware of any proofs that the listed numbers can never appear. The terms shown are those listed by Pickover. - N. J. A. Sloane, Jun 19 2008

However, a gap of 35 doesn't occur until after the 35755308th term (483379914), so these missing gaps could eventually occur. - Jud McCranie, Jun 13 2008

The sequence is conjectured to continue: 23, 26, 28, 31, 33.  These gaps do not appear in the first 158000000 terms, so are candidates for the sequence. [Jud McCranie, Sep 12 2013]

The conjectured list of gaps that don't appear holds through the first 28 billion Ulam numbers. - Jud McCranie, Jan 07 2016
