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

p:= 0: q:= 0: res:= NULL:

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;
