(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A198191 Start with sequence 1,2,3, after this a(n) is smallest number > a(n-1) coprime to sum of previous elements. 1
1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 11, 12, 13, 17, 18, 21, 23, 24, 25, 27, 28, 29, 31, 32, 33, 35, 36, 37, 39, 41, 43, 44, 45, 47, 52, 53, 59, 60, 61, 67, 68, 71, 73, 74, 75, 77, 78, 79, 81, 83, 85, 86, 87, 89, 91, 93, 94, 95, 97, 98, 100, 101, 103, 104, 105, 107, 109, 111 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

1,2

COMMENTS

Starting with sequence 1 and adding increasing numbers coprime to sum of previous elements yields periodic sequence A001651.

By starting with 1,2,3, you get this sequence, apparently non-periodic with sporadic periodic runs of varied length.

Sequence appears to have density of about 0.6 with respect to the positive integers.

Not all primes are in this sequence, 19 being the first missing prime.

EXAMPLE

1,2,3 are in the sequence by fiat.

The element smaller than 4 are 1,2,3 with sum 6. 4 is not coprime to 6, so 4 is excluded.

The elements smaller than 5 are 1,2,3 with sum 6. 5 is coprime to 6, so 5 is included.

The elements smaller than 6 are 1,2,3,5 with sum 11. 6 is coprime to 11, so 6 is included.
