Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

COMMENTS

Sieve proceeds as:

1) take the 1st element from natural numbers (A000027): 1; remaining set is 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,...; S1={1}

2) take the 1st element from the remaining set: 2; remaining set is 3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,...; take the 2nd element from the remaining set: 4; remaining set is 3,5,6,7,8,9,10,...; S2={2,4}

3) take the 1st element from the remaining set: 3; remaining set is 5,6,7,8,9,10,...; take the 3rd element from the remaining set: 7; remaining set is 5,6,8,9,10,11,12,...; take the 7th element from the remaining set: 12; remaining set is 5,6,8,9,10,11,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,..; S3={3,7,12}

4) take the 1st element from the remaining set: 5; remaining set is 6,8,9,10,11,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,..; take the 5th element from the remaining set: 11; remaining set is 6,8,9,10,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,..; take the 11th element from the remaining set: 19; remaining set is 6,8,9,10,13,14,15,16,17,18,20,..; take the 19th element from the remaining set: 28; remaining set is 6,8,9,10,13,14,15,16,17,18,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,29,30,31,...;

thus S4={5,11,19,28}.

The sequence is concatenation of such subsequences S1,S2,S3,S4,S5,...,Sn, ..., where each subsequence consists of n nondecreasing terms. Alternatively, these can be viewed as rows of a triangular table.
