COMMENTS

It is conjectured that for all n, a(n) = 0 implies that a(n+1) = 6n+5 is prime, cf. A186258. (This is the sequence {u(n)} mentioned there.)

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..82.

EXAMPLE

a(2) = a(1) - gcd(a(1),6+5) = 1 - 1 = 0.

a(3) = |a(2) - gcd(a(2),6*2+5)| = gcd(0,17) = 17 is prime.

a(5) = 15, thus a(6) = 15 - gcd(15,6*5+5) = 15 - 5 = 10; similarly after a(25) = 93.

PROG

(PARI) print1(a=1); for(n=1, 199, print1(", ", a=abs(a-gcd(a, 6*n+5))))
