 A138007 Produced by a sieve: Start with the natural numbers; at the k-th step remove every A138008(k+1)-th term of the sequence remaining after the (k-1)-st sieving step. 2

 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS The sequence A138008 is defined using this sequence, in the same way as A138008 is used to define this sequence. The sequences can be found this way: Define a(n,1)=n. Now write the natural numbers and run this sieve: In the k-th step remove every a(k+1,1)-th number that remained after k-1 step. You will get this: 1, 3, 7, 13, 19, ... (A000960). Now let a(n,2) be n-th number in this sequence. In the same way: Define a(n,i+1) to be the n-th number left after running the similar sieve on the natural numbers using a(n,i) instead of a(n,1). Now: a(n,2i+1)-> A138007(n) when i->infinity and, a(n,2i)-> A138008(n) when i->infinity. LINKS EXAMPLE Start with the natural numbers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, ... Remove every A138008(2)=3rd term: 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 11, 13, 14, 16, 17, 19, 20, ... Remove every A138008(3)=5th term: 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 11, 13, 16, 17, 19, 20, ... Remove every A138008(4)=9th term: 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 11, 13, 17, 19, 20, ... and so on. CROSSREFS Cf. A138008.
