This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.

 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. Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 3,1 COMMENTS Let A166133 = B; A166133 is defined as: After b(1)=1, b(2)=2, and b(3)=4, b(n+1) is the smallest divisor of b(n)^2-1 that has not yet appeared in the sequence. A256557(n) = A166133(n)^2-1. Therefore, a(n) = (A166133(n)^2-1)/A166133(n+1), n>=3; that is, a(n) is A256557(n) divided by the smallest divisor of A166133(n+1)^2-1 which has not yet appeared in A166133. For example, a(12) = 5 means that 5 is A256557(12) = A166133(12)^2-1 = 80 divided its smallest divisor which has not yet appeared in A166133 (i.e., 16). LINKS EXAMPLE a(13) = 17 because A256557(13)/A166133(14) = 255/15 = 17.
