 OFFSET 1,3 COMMENTS Take Pascal's triangle (A007318) with each row shifted right by two more places (see Examples section). Color an entry red if it is divisible by the row number. Mann and Shanks prove that the number of a column is prime iff every entry in that column is red. The sequence is the triangle obtained by reading down the prime-numbered columns. For example, column 13 is 10 followed by 6, both numbers being red. See link for a better picture. REFERENCES Mann, Henry B.; Shanks, Daniel.
