COMMENTS

It appears that the sequence contains all even numbers.

EXAMPLE

a(8) = 10 because 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8 have already been used in the sequence, 1 + 2 + 4 + 6 + 3 + 7 + 8 + 5 = 36 is not prime power, 1 + 2 + 4 + 6 + 3 + 7 + 8 + 9 = 40 is not prime power while 1 + 2 + 4 + 6 + 3 + 7 + 8 + 10 = 41 is a prime power.


MATHEMATICA

t = {1}; Do[i = 1; While[! PrimePowerQ[Total[t] + i]  MemberQ[t, i], i++]; AppendTo[t, i], {75}]; t
