COMMENTS

The sequence starts with a(1) = 2 and was always extended with the smallest integer not yet present that does not lead to a contradiction.

EXAMPLE

As a(1) = 2, we take for a(2) and a(3) the nonprimes "1" and "4"; we then extend the sequence with a(4) which must be the smallest prime not yet present: this is "3"; we take for a(5), a(6) and a(7) the 3 smallest nonprimes not yet present: they are 6, 8 and 9; we then extend the sequence with the smallest prime available, which is a(8) = 5. Etc.


MAPLE

for i from 1 to 20 do
p:= nextprime(p);
res:= res, p;
count:= 0;
while count < p do
q:= q+1;
if not isprime(q) then
res:= res, q;
count:= count+1;
