 A103865 a(1) = 1; a(n) is the smallest positive integer not occurring earlier in the sequence if n is a composite. a(n) = a(n-1)th smallest positive integer among those not occurring earlier in the sequence if n is prime. 4

 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Sequence is a permutation of the positive integers. LINKS Michael De Vlieger, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000 EXAMPLE Since 5 is prime, a(5) = a(4)th (3rd) smallest positive integer not occurring earlier in the sequence. The terms not occurring earlier in the sequence are 5,6,7,8,9,... and the 3rd of these is 7.
