 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS a(1)=1; for n>1, a(n) is the smallest positive integer not occurring earlier in the sequence such that a(n) does not divide sum{k=1 to n-1} a(k). - Leroy Quet, Nov 13 2005 (This was the original definition. A simple induction argument shows that this is the same as the present definition. - N. J. A. Sloane, Mar 12 2018) Define b(1)=2; for n>1, b(n) is the smallest number not yet in the sequence which shares a prime factor with the sum of all preceding terms. Then a simple induction argument shows that the b(n) sequence is the same as the present sequence with the first term omitted. - David James Sycamore, Feb 26 2018 Here are the details of the two induction arguments (Start) For a(n), let A(n) = a(1)+...+a(n). The claim is that for n>2 a(n)=n+1 if n odd, n-1 if n even. The induction hypotheses are: for i
