Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

Hints
(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)

COMMENTS

All terms are odd and equal to p - 2 for some prime p. Definition assumes that a(i+1) > a(i) as otherwise adding 1 to any initial subsequence would still satisfy the definition. - Chai Wah Wu, Jan 12 2019

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..10.

EXAMPLE

1*3 + 2, 3*5 + 2, 1*5 + 2, etc. are primes.

9*1 + 2 = 11, 9*3 + 2 = 29, 9*5 + 2 = 47 are all prime numbers, therefore we can say that a(4) = 9.

MATHEMATICA

a = {1}; For[n = 2, n < 1000000, n++, b = Table[a[[i]]*n + 2, {i, 1, Length[ a]}]; If[Union[PrimeQ[b], PrimeQ[b]] == {True}, AppendTo[a, n]]]; a (* Stefan Steinerberger, Jun 02 2007 *)
