COMMENTS

It is conjectured that for all n > 2, u(n) = 0 implies that u(n+1) = 9n+8 is prime, cf. A186261. (This is the sequence {u(n)} mentioned there.)

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..68.

EXAMPLE

a(2) = a(1) - gcd(a(1),9+8) = 1 - 1 = 0.

a(3) = |a(2) - gcd(a(2),9*2+8)| = gcd(0,26) = 26.

a(3+26) = a(29) = 0 and a(29+1) = gcd(0,9*29+8) = 269 is prime.

PROG

(PARI) print1(a=1); for(n=1, 99, print1(", ", a=abs(a-gcd(a, 9*n+8))))
