Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

Note that before entering the cycle (41, 131, 37, 11) there are 34 terms of the sequence a(1),a(2),...,a(33)=53 and a(34)=173.

FORMULA

If k is a natural number then a(4k+31)=41; a(4k+32)=131; a(4k+33)=37 and a(4k+34)=11.

EXAMPLE

a(1)=433640083 so b(1)=nextprime(433640083)=433640093 and c(1)=nextprime(433640093)=433640101 hence a(2) equals largest prime factor of 433640083+433640093+433640101.

But 433640083+433640093+433640101=1300920277 is prime so a(2)= 1300920277.
