 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS Any nonnegative number can be written as a sum of distinct primes + e, where e is 0 or 1 (see A007924, which uses a greedy algorithm for writing n). However in this sequence a(n) is generated by using a minimizing algorithm that gives the smallest binary vector for select members from the sequence Q = (1 union primes) that when summed gives n. Without the minimizing condition there is ambiguity -- for example, 8 = 7+1 = 5+3 = 5+2+1 has three representations. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=0..31. Wikipedia, "Complete" sequence. [Wikipedia calls a sequence "complete" (sic) if every positive integer is a sum of distinct terms. This name is extremely misleading and should be avoided. - N. J. A. Sloane, May 20 2023] FORMULA Let Q be the ordered sequence of (1 union primes), then a(n) x Q = n, where x is the inner product and the binary vector a(n) is in ascending powers of 2 with infinite trailing zeros. EXAMPLE 8 = 7+1 = 5+3 = 5+2+1, so a(8) = 1011.
