%N a(n)=a(n-2)+a(n-5).

%C Perrin-like prime-divisibility sequence, but based upon template 7=5+2 in place of 5=3+2.

%C 1. Apparently identical to A007387 but for latter's third term 3. 2. Attention directed to remainder upon division of a term by its (composite) argument, when latter =1 or 5 (mod 6). Possible factorization tool for impostor candidate primes? 3. Recurrence period, any length-five string of term values (mod 6) found in the sequence: 2^3*13*31, to Perrin's three-term period of 7*13. Note 13= 2*6+1, 31 = 5*6+1. 4. Query: Smallest pseudoprime >9. 5. Query: Closed form for n-th term.

%C Semiprimes a= 9, 14, 34, 57, 91 etc. are at the indices n=9, 12, 16, 17, 19, 21, 24, 25, 26, 31, 32, 40, 44, 45, 51, 53, 59, 66, 72, 76, 80, 110 etc. - _R. J. Mathar_, Nov 24 2007
