A257717 a(n) is the smallest oldd-indexed prime not included earlier such that a(n) + a(n-1) + a(n-2) is a prime, beginning with a(1) = 5 and a(2) = 11. 3

COMMENTS

The union of A257716 and A257717 is A065091 (conjecture).

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..58.

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 31 since a(1)+a(2) is 16 and 31, whose index equals 11, is the first odd-indexed prime which meets the criteria. 16 + 7 = 23, a prime, but 7 is the 4th prime and therefore cannot be used.

MATHEMATICA

f[s_List] := Block[{p = s[[-2]] + s[[-1]], q = 17}, While[ !PrimeQ[p + q] || MemberQ[s, q], q = NextPrime[q, 2]]; Append[s, q]]; Nest[f, {5, 11}, 56]
