FORMULA

a(3k+1) = 3, k = 0,1,2,... a(5k+4) = 5 if k is not a multiple of 3; k = 1,2,4,5,7,8,... - Alexander Adamchuk, Nov 28 2006

a(n) = A020639(4n-1). - R. J. Mathar, Jan 23 2007

EXAMPLE

The prime divisors of 4*9 - 1 = 35 are 5 and 7, so a(9) = 5.

PROG

(PARI) vector(77, n, factor(4*n-1)[1, 1])
