COMMENTS

This is to the tribonacci sequence as A055502 is to the Fibonacci sequence and A113823 is to the tribonacci sequence (i.e., least prime greater than the sum of the previous 2 terms in A055502, least prime greater than the sum of the previous 3 terms in A113823, least prime greater than the sum of the previous 4 terms in this sequence).

FORMULA

a(-n) = a(0) = 0, a(1) = 2, for n>1: a(n) = smallest prime > a(n-1)+a(n-2)+a(n-3)+a(n-4).

EXAMPLE

a(15) = 19991 because a(11)+a(12)+a(13)+a(14) = 1447 + 2789 + 5381 + 10369 = 19986 and 19991 is the smallest prime > 19986.

MATHEMATICA
