COMMENTS

Are there any composites in this sequence? If not, is this sequence a permutation of the primes?

EXAMPLE

For a(7) we check: 7*1 +1= 8, which is not coprime to a(1)=2. 7*2 +1= 15, which is not coprime to either a(2)=3 or to a(4)=5. 7*3 +1 = 22, which is not coprime to either a(1)=2 or to a(5)=11. But 7*4+1 = 29, which is coprime to terms a(1) through a(6). So a(7) = 29.
