 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Note that a(n) = n when n is prime. Question: Is a(n) > 0 for all n? I do not have a value for a(46). a(46)=403941973, a(52)=31626333786385669717. - Michel Marcus, May 19 2013 LINKS Robert Israel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..2000 EXAMPLE 4 -> 4 + (first prime > 4) = 4 + 5 = 9 -> 9 + 11 = 20 -> 20 + 23 = 43 (prime). So a(4) = 43.
