A247665 a(1)=2; thereafter a(n) is the smallest number not yet used which is compatible with the condition that a(n) is relatively prime to the next n terms. 23

%C It appears that a(k) is even iff k = 2^i-1 (cf. A248379). It also appears that all powers of 2 occur in the sequence. (_Amarnath Murthy_)

%C The indices of even terms and their values are [1, 2], [3, 4], [7, 8], [15, 14], [31, 16], [63, 32], [127, 64], [255, 128], [511, 122], ...

%C Will the numbers 6, 10, 21, 22, ... ever occur? 12, 18, 20, ... are also missing, but if 6 never appears then neither will 12, etc.

%C A related question: are all terms deficient? - _Peter Munn_, Jul 20 2017

%e a(1) = 2 must be rel. prime to a(2), so a(2)=3.

%e a(2) = 3 must be rel. prime to a(3) and a(4), so we can take them to be 4 and 5.

%e a(3) = 4 must be rel. prime to a(5), a(6), so we must take them to be 7,9.

%e a(4) = 5 must be rel. prime to a(7), a(8), so we must take them to be 8,11.

%e At each step after the first, we must choose two new numbers, and we must make sure that not only are they rel. prime to a(n), they are also rel. prime to all a(i), i>n, that have been already chosen.
