A073895 a(1)=1. a(n)=a(n-1)+k(n). If a(n-1) is nonprime, k(n) is the smallest composite not in the set {k(i),i<n}. If a(n-1) is prime, k(n) is the smallest prime not in the set {k(i),i<n}. 2

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..53.

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 1+4 = 5 which is prime hence a(3) = 5+2 = 7 which is also a prime,a(4)= 7+3 = 10 which is composite hence a(5) = 10 + 6 = 16.
