COMMENTS

Though initial terms match it is different from A039726, in that a smaller prime may appear later.

Some of the larger entries may only correspond to probable primes.

A158076 suggests that the numbers in this sequence can be generated quite easily/quickly. Perhaps this sequence is a fast method to generate large probable primes. [Dmitry Kamenetsky, Mar 12 2009]

EXAMPLE

The n-th term is the smallest prime that is not already in the sequence, such that one plus the product of the first n terms is prime. [Dmitry Kamenetsky, Mar 12 2009]

MATHEMATICA

f[s_List] := Block[{p = Times @@ s, q = 2}, While[ MemberQ[s, q] || !PrimeQ[p*q + 1], q = NextPrime@ q]; Append[s, q]]; Nest[f, {2}, 63] (* Robert G. Wilson v, Jul 20 2017 *)

PROG

(PARI) { terms=100; a=A083772=vector(terms); a[1]=2; tmp=1; A083772[1]=3; for(k=2, terms, tmp=tmp*a[k-1]; p=1; while(1, until(isprime(p), p=p+2); for(m=1, k-1, if(p==a[m], break, if(m==k-1, if(isprime(tmp*p+1), a[k]=p; A083772[k]=tmp*p+1; print1(a[k], ", "); break(2))))))); a }
