A255509 a(1)=1, a(2)=2, a(3)=3; for n>=4, a(n) is the maximal prime factor P_n of a(n-2) if P_n is not already a term, otherwise a(n) is the smallest not appeared earlier positive number x such that gcd(x,a(n-2))>1, gcd(x,a(n-1))=1. 2

COMMENTS

By definition, in contrast to A098550, in this sequence there is a priority for appearance of the primes.
