%N Produced by a sieve: Start with the natural numbers; at the kth step remove every A138008(k+1)th term of the sequence remaining after the (k1)st sieving step.
%C The sequence A138008 is defined using this sequence, in the same way as A138008 is used to define this sequence.
%C The sequences can be found this way:
%C Define a(n,1)=n.
%C Now write the natural numbers and run this sieve: In the kth step remove every a(k+1,1)th number that remained after k1 step. You will get this:
%C 1, 3, 7, 13, 19, ... (A000960).
%C Now let a(n,2) be nth number in this sequence.
%C In the same way: Define a(n,i+1) to be the nth number left after running the similar sieve on the natural numbers using a(n,i) instead of a(n,1). Now:
%C a(n,2i+1)> A138007(n) when i>infinity and,
%C a(n,2i)> A138008(n) when i>infinity.
%e Start with the natural numbers:
%e 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, ...
%e Remove every A138008(2)=3rd term:
%e 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 11, 13, 14, 16, 17, 19, 20, ...
%e Remove every A138008(3)=5th term:
%e 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 11, 13, 16, 17, 19, 20, ...
%e Remove every A138008(4)=9th term:
%e 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 11, 13, 17, 19, 20, ...
%e and so on.
