COMMENTS

The associated sequence of elements of the determinants is A119838 = 1, 1, 1, 3, 8, 31, 87, 340, 959, 3751, 10581, 41396.

FORMULA

a(0) = a(1) = a(2) = 0 (or any arbitrary nonprime < 2); for n>2: a(n) = min{prime p = a(n)*a(n-3) - a(n-1)*a(n-2) where a(n) = A119838(n)}. Prime p = determinant [a(n-3),a(n-2),a(n-1),a(n)] = a(n)*a(n-3) - a(n-1)*a(n-2) is a prime greater than any previous prime in this sequence, where a(n) = A119838(n).

EXAMPLE

a(6) = 13 because the of the prime determinant formed from a(3,4,5,6) = (3,8,31,87) namely 13 =

|.3..8|

|31.87|.
