COMMENTS

A coprime chain is a nonempty set of integers greater than 1 such that all primes <= the largest member divide exactly one term of the set. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Apr 24 2013

FORMULA

Entringer proves that log a(n) ~ sqrt(n). - Charles R Greathouse IV, Apr 24 2013

If p and q are consecutive primes with q > p, then a(q) = a(q-1) + a(q-2) + ... + a(p). - Charlie Neder, Dec 15 2018

EXAMPLE

The a(11) = 9 coprime chains with largest element 11 are {2,3,5,7,11}, {2,5,7,9,11}, {3,4,5,7,11}, {3,5,7,8,11}, {3,7,10,11}, {4,5,7,9,11}, {5,6,7,11}, {5,7,8,9,11}, and {7,9,10,11}. - Charlie Neder, Dec 15 2018

PROG

(PARI) isCC(v)=forprime(p=2, vecmax(v), if(sum(i=1, #v, v[i]%p==0)!=1, return(0))); 1

a(n)=my(v=vector(n-1, i, i+1)); sum(i=2^(n-2), 2^(n-1)-1, isCC(vecextract(v, i))) \\ Charles R Greathouse IV, Apr 24 2013
