COMMENTS

Note that Bergerson's Alpha construction is applied to composite numbers only. Otherwise the sequence could not contain numbers which are twice a prime, like 30662 and 84662.  Giovanni Resta, Mar 11 2013

EXAMPLE

The number 87 is not in the sequence because it can be reached from 90 = 2*3*3*5, since 87 = 90233+5.  Giovanni Resta, Mar 11 2013


MATHEMATICA

seq[n_] := Block[{T = 0*Range@n, f, m}, m[{p_, e_}] := p*Range[e, e, 2]; Do[f = FactorInteger@z; If[Last/@f != {1}, T[[Select[z + Union[ Total /@ Tuples[m /@ f]], 0 < # <= n &]]] = 1], {z, 4, 2*n+4}]; Flatten@Position[T, 0]]; seq[10^5] (* Giovanni Resta, Mar 11 2013 *)
