Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

This is like the Fibonacci sequence but subtraction replaces addition when neither of the preceding two terms are prime numbers.

Paul Tek, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000

FORMULA

a(0) = 1, a(1) = 2, a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-2) unless both a(n-1) and a(n-2) are composite, then a(n) = a(n-1) - a(n-2).

EXAMPLE

a(6) = 21 because a(5)=13 is prime and 13 + 8 = 21.

a(7) = 34 because a(5) is prime and 21 + 13 = 34.

a(8) = 13 because neither a(6) nor a(7) is prime and 34 - 21 = 13.
