COMMENTS

Inverse: A167905; A167904(n) = a(a(n)). [Reinhard Zumkeller, Nov 15 2009]

Conjectured to be a permutation of the natural numbers. - Derek Orr, Jun 01 2015

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..72.

Index entries for sequences that are permutations of the natural numbers [Reinhard Zumkeller, Nov 15 2009]

EXAMPLE

9,10,11,12,... are the positive integers not occurring among the first 8 terms of the sequence. a(8) + 9 = 16, which is not squarefree. a(8) + 10 = 17, which is squarefree. So a(9) = 10.

MATHEMATICA

f[s_] := Block[{k = 1}, While[MemberQ[s, k] || Max @@ Last /@ FactorInteger[(s[[ -1]] + k)] > 1, k++ ]; Append[s, k]]; Nest[f, {1}, 75] (* Ray Chandler, Sep 06 2006 *)
