FORMULA

If, for a given fixed a(1), b(n,j) = number of a(k)'s which are multiples of j, for 1 <= k <= n1, then: a(n) = Sum_{jn} mu(j)*b(n,j), where mu(j) is the Moebius (Möbius) function.


EXAMPLE

a(1)=1, a(2)=1 and a(9)=7 are those terms, prior to a(10), which are coprime with 10. So a(10) = 3.


MAPLE

a[1]:=1: for n from 2 to 100 do B:=[seq(gcd(n, a[j]), j=1..n1)]; s:=0: for i from 1 to n1 do if B[i]=1 then s:=s+1 else s:=s: fi: od: a[n]:=s: od: seq(a[n], n=1..85); # Emeric Deutsch, Aug 01 2005


MATHEMATICA

a[1] = 1; a[n_] := a[n] = Count[ GCD[ Table[ a[i], {i, n  1}], n], 1]; Table[ a[n], {n, 80}] (* Robert G. Wilson v, Jul 30 2004 *)
