 Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”). Other ways to Give

 A119839 Least increasing sequence of primes equal to determinants of sequence A119838 starting (1,1,1) of continuous blocks of 4 numbers. 1
 0, 0, 0, 2, 5, 7, 13, 23, 149, 277, 331, 9433 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 0,4 COMMENTS The associated sequence of elements of the determinants is A119838 = 1, 1, 1, 3, 8, 31, 87, 340, 959, 3751, 10581, 41396. LINKS 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|. CROSSREFS Cf. A000040, A119838.
