 A073602 a(n) is the smallest prime different from a(k) for k < n such that sum(a(j), j=1..n) is a multiple of the n-th prime. 3

 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Conjecture: Every prime belongs to this sequence. Among first 10^6 terms first missing primes are {5, 13, 41, 61, 71, 89, 173, 193, 227, 229, 239, 283, 313, 337, 389, 401, 439, 449, 461, 467, 479, 499, 509, 541}; only two "fixed points" are a(1) = prime(1) = 2 and a(9) = prime(9) = 23. - Zak Seidov, Jun 12 2015 Also, among first 10^6 terms there are just 16931 "early birds": terms a(k) such that a(k) < A000040(k); first values of k are: 27, 31, 38, 48, 51, 113, 99, 51, 113, 137, 191, 240, 254, 297, 308, ... - Zak Seidov, Jun 12 2015 LINKS Zak Seidov, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000 EXAMPLE a(5) = 17 since 2 + 7 + 11 + 29 + 17 = 66 is a multiple of 11, the fifth prime. For the smaller primes 3, 5, 13 the corresponding sums 52, 54, 62 are not multiples of 11. MATHEMATICA t = {2}; Do[p = Prime[n]; i = 2; While[!
