COMMENTS

Conjecture: a(n) = {1,3} UNION {permutation of even positive numbers}.

The corresponding partial sums + 1 are 2, 5, 7, 13, 17, 29, 37, 47, 61, 79, 101, 127, 151, ...,.

FORMULA

a(n) = MIN{k>0 such that 1 + k + SUM[i=1..n-1]a(i) is prime and k <> a(i)}.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 1 because 1+1 = 2 is prime.

a(2) = 3 because 1+3+1 = 5 is prime.

a(3) = 2 because 1+3+2+1 = 7 is prime.

a(4) = 4 because 1+3+2+4+1 = 11 is prime.

MAPLE

N:= 200: # to get all terms before the first term > N

A[1]:= 1: A[2]:= 3: P:= 5; S:= [seq(2*i, i=1..N/2)]:

for n from 3 while assigned(A[n-1]) do

  for k from 1 to nops(S) do

    if isprime(P+S[k]) then

      A[n]:= S[k];

      P:= P + S[k];

      S:= subsop(k=NULL, S);

      break

    fi

  od;
