COMMENTS

This is the 4-term analog of the 2-term recurrence A111288 a(1) = a(2) = a(3) = a(4) = 1. For n>= 5, a(n) = a(n-1)*a(n-3) + a(n-2)*a(n-4). Primes in this sequence include a(n) for n = 9, 10, 14, 15... with a(16) through a(28) composite, a(28) has 74 digits and the sequence growing beyond my ability to efficiently test primality.

FORMULA

a(0) = a(1) = a(2) = a(3) = a(4) = a(5) = a(6) = a(7) = 1; for n>7: a(n) = a(n-1)*a(n-6) + a(n-2)*a(n-7) + a(n-3)*a(n-8) + a(n-4)*a(n-9).
