COMMENTS

The rule "jump over next smth" can be varied. In the A075695 the example: "jump over next second prime" is given.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..56.

FORMULA

a(1)=1, a(n) = 2 nextprime(a(n-1))-a(n-1).

EXAMPLE

a(1)=1; next prime (smallest larger than a(1))=2; "jump over" it: 2+(2-1)=3; a(2)=3; next prime (smallest larger than a(2))=5; "jump over" it: 5+(5-3)=7; a(7)=31; next prime (smallest larger than a(7))=37; "jump over" it: 37+(37-31)=43.

MAPLE

a(1) := 1; a(n)=2*nextprime(a(n-1))-a(n-1);

CROSSREFS
