 OFFSET 2,4 COMMENTS Let k = A001222(n) be the number of prime divisors of n and let m>n be the smallest number larger than n with the same number of prime divisors, k=A001222(m). Then a(n) = (m+n-k) mod (m-n+k). LINKS EXAMPLE a(1) is undefined because there is only 1 0-almost prime (the 1 itself). a(2) = 0 because (3 + 2 - 1 mod 3 - 2 + 1) = (4 mod 2) = 0 where 1 < 2 < 3 and 2, 3 are consecutive 1-almost primes, a(3) = 1 because (5 + 3 - 1 mod 5 - 3 + 1) = (7 mod 3) = 1 where 1 < 3 < 5 and 3, 5 are consecutive 1-almost primes, a(4) = 0 because (6 + 4 - 2 mod 6 - 4 + 2) = (8 mod 4) = 0 where 1 < 4 < 6 and 4, 6 because consecutive 2-almost primes, a(5) = 2 because (7 + 5 - 1 mod 7 - 5 + 1) = (11 mod 3) = 2 where 1 < 5 < 7 and 5, 7 are consecutive 1-almost primes, a(6) = 3 because (9 + 6 - 2 mod 9 - 6 + 2) = (13 mod 5) = 3 where 1 < 6 < 9 and 6, 9 are consecutive 2-almost primes.
