 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Obviously, for all n, a(n) is greater than one. According to the definition of a(n) for all n, A002386(n+1) < a(n)*A002386(n). So if n is less than 75 and n not equal to 64, then A002386(n+1) < 8*A002386(n). Also for all n, where n is less than 75, A002386(n+1) < 26*A002386(n). The strictly increasing terms of the sequence: 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 26, ?, ... . Record values are {2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 26} = {a(1), a(2), a(3), a(6), a(10), a(64)}. A very difficult question: "What is the next term of the above sequence?" namely "What is the next term of the sequence which is greater than a(64) = 26 ?". I don't think that in this century anyone can find the answer. LINKS FORMULA a(n) = ceiling(A002386(n+1)/A002386(n)) = floor(A002386(n+1)/A002386(n))+1. EXAMPLE a(10) = ceiling(A002386(11)/A002386(10)) = ceiling(9551/1327) = 8. CROSSREFS Cf. A000040, A002386.
