COMMENTS

Conjectures: (row 1) = A055496, (column 1) = A193507, and for each row r(k), the limit of r(k)/2^k exists. For rows 1 to 4, the respective limits are 1.569985..., 2.677285..., 8.230592..., 10.709142...; see Franklin T. Adams-Watters's comment at A055496.

The above conjecture row 1 = A055496 is true; additionally, row 2 = A065545; row 3 = A065546; the first 5 terms of row 6 are a contiguous subsequence of A064934; and column 1 = A194598. - Bob Selcoe, Oct 27 2015; corrected by Peter Munn, Jul 30 2017

The conjecture for column 1 is true iff A194598 and A193507 are equivalent. Is this the case? - Bob Selcoe, Oct 29 2015

Column 1 diverges from A193507 at A(14,1) = 113, a prime not in A193507. 113 is in column 1 as it does not follow a prime in a row: 107 follows 53 and 127 follows 59, the next prime after 53. - Peter Munn, Jul 30 2017
