A165401 Antidiagonally reading the array, formed via: first, writing the primes in the first row (row_1), and forming all successive rows' elements using the previous rows' elements as: row_2(j) = row_1(j)*row_1(j+1) - row_1(j) - row_1(j+1), and so on. The first 'column' of the array, 2 1 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 ... is converted to its absolute value. 0

COMMENTS

The actual array that leads to the list given above is:

2 3 5 7 11 13 17 19 ...

1 7 23 59 119 191 287 395 ...

1 131 1275 6843 22419 54339 112683 241915 ...

1 165619 8716707 ...

1 1443643414307 ...

It can be observed that:

1) Obviously, all primes will appear in the list at least once, as the first row of the generating array is composed of all the primes.

2) There exist primes that appear more than once (e.g., 23, 59, 131, 191...).

3) When we have two successive primes in a row, prime(i) & prime(i+1) -as in all of the first row, and occasionally in other rows- the element just below these two is, obviously, Euler_tot( prime(i) * prime (i+1) ) - 1.

Cf. A000040: The list of prime numbers is the first row of the array, that is converted to the list. Cf. A037165: This list, "Prime(n)*prime(n+1)-prime(n)-prime(n+1)" is the second row of the array, that is converted to the list.
