COMMENTS

Coefficients in 1/(1+g(x)), where g is the generating functions of the sequence of nonprimes: (1,4,6,8,9,...).  For the convolutory inverse of the primes, see A030018.  Conjecture:  a(n+1)/a(n) has a limit, -2.4633754095588889..., analogous to the Backhouse constant.

The sequences with nonzero first term form a group under convolution.  The identity is (1,0,0,0,...), and the inverse of a sequence r(1), r(2), r(3), ... is s(1), s(2), s(3),... given by s(1) = 1/r(1) and s(n) = -(r(2)*s(n-1) + ... + r(n)*s(1))/r(1).  Thus, s(i) are the coefficients of the power series for 1/(r(1) + r(2)*x + r(3)*x^2 + ... ).

EXAMPLE

(1,4,6,8,9,...)**(1,-4,10,-24,59,...) = (1,0,0,0,0,...), where ** denotes convolution.

MATHEMATICA

z = 1000; c = Complement[Range[z], Prime[Range[PrimePi[z]]]]; r[n_] := r[n] = c[[n]]; k[n_] := k[n] = 0; k[1] = 1; a[n_] := a[n] = (k[n] - Sum[r[i]*a[n - i + 1], {i, 2, n}])/r[1]; t = Table[a[n], {n, 1, 40}]   (* A225127 *)
