COMMENTS

a(n) generates primes with probability >1/2 for a random integer [1,10^4] (see reference). For confirmation, I checked the distribution of primes using the link. Results up to a(24) are shown below. P and C stand for prime and composite, respectively. a(1):P a(2):C a(3):C a(4):P a(5):P a(6):P a(7):P a(8):P a(9):C a(10):C a(11):P a(12):P a(13):P a(14):P a(15):C a(16):C a(17):P a(18):P a(19):P a(20):C a(21):P a(22):P a(23):C a(24):P Probability was 16/24 > 1/2.
