A138203 Sieve: start with the natural numbers; at the n-th step in the sieve remove every A138204(n)-th term from the sequence remaining in the prior step, where A138204 is the complement to this sequence starting with A138204(1)=2. 1

EXAMPLE

Process: start with the natural numbers and then

delete every 2nd term:

(1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15,17,19,21,23,25,27,29,...);

4 is missing, so delete every 4th term (7,15,23,...):

(1,3,5,9,11,13,17,19,21,25,27,29,...);

6 is missing, so delete every 6th term (13,29,...):

(1,3,5,9,11,17,19,21,25,27,...);

7 is missing, delete the 7th term (19,...):

(1,3,5,9,11,17,21,25,27,...);

8 is missing, delete the 8th term (25,...):

(1,3,5,9,11,17,21,27,...);

continue in this way to generate this sequence;

the missing terms form sequence A138204.
