a(1) = 1, a(2) = 2, a(3) = 3; triangle where nth row has lowest n positive integers not yet in the sequence such that each integer has a prime divisor in common with at least one element of the (n1)th row.

COMMENTS

Is this a permutation of the positive integers?
Conjectures from N. J. A. Sloane, Apr 22, 2005:
"Call a number "postponed" if it cannot be placed right away, that is, if it is relatively prime to the numbers in the previous row. Then I conjecture that:
"(1) a number n >= 4 is postponed iff n is prime,
"(2) every number appears,
"(3) the primes appear in order,
"(4) 2p (p prime) will appear in one row and p will appear in the next row,
"(5) let c(i) = A018252(i) be the ith nonprime and define a sequence k(n) [see A104655], n >= 3, by k(3) = 4 and for n >= 4, n*(n+1)/2 = pi( floor( c(k(n1))/2 ) ) + k(n). Then the final term in row n, for n >= 3, is c(k(n)) [A104656]."

EXAMPLE

Triangle begins:
1
2 3
4 6 8
9 10 12 14
5 7 15 16 18
20 21 22 24 25 26
11 13 27 28 30 32 33
...
7 is in the 5th row because it does not occur earlier and 14 is in the 4th row.
