COMMENTS

A floretion-generated sequence relating to Fibonacci numbers and powers of 2. The sequence results from a particular transform of the sequence A000079 (powers of 2).

Can be considered the (1,3,-2)-weighted tribonacci sequence with seed (1,-1,3). Primes include: 2, 3, 241, 23189. Semiprimes include: 9, 38, 91, 309, 3991, 5398, 14977, 222531, 1623433, 106400013, 426946321, 863120107. Note that 96937 = 31 * 53 * 59 has 3 prime factors with equal number of digits. - Jonathan Vos Post, Feb 25 2005
