COMMENTS

Define a 2-based sum S(n) = sum_{i=0..n} (2- (-1)^i*i) = 2*n-(-1)^n*A152832(n).

a(n) is this sum evaluated at A141468(n).

FORMULA

a(n)=sum_{x=0..n-th nonprime}2-x*(-1)^x. - Juri-Stepan Gerasimov, Jul 28 2009

EXAMPLE

a(1)=2-0*(-1)^0=2. a(2)=2-0*(-1)^0+2-1*(-1)^1=2+3=5.

a(3)=2-0*(-1)^0+2-1*(-1)^1+2-2*(-1)^2+2-3*(-1)^3+2-4*(-1)^4=2+3+0+5-2=8.

MAPLE

A152832 := proc(n) option remember; if n = 0 then -2; else n-procname(n-1) ; fi; end:

A141468 := proc(n) option remember ; local a; if n <=2 then n-1; else for a from procname(n-1)+1 do if not isprime(a) then RETURN(a); fi; od: fi; end:

A162938 := proc(n) local npr; npr := A141468(n) ; 2*npr-(-1)^npr*A152832(npr) ; end:
