COMMENTS

The Firoozbakht Conjecture, "prime(n)^(1/n) is a strictly decreasing function of n" is true if and only if a(n) is nonnegative for all n, n>1.
A246777 is a hard subsequence of this sequence.
18 is not in the sequence. It seems that, 18 is the only nonnegative integer which is not in the sequence.
