 A277618 Lexicographically earliest nonnegative sequence such that |a(n+1)-a(n)| is a prime number, and no number occurs twice; a(0) = 0. 4

 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS A variant of A277616, which is defined in a similar way with squares > 1 instead of primes. The steps a(n+1)-a(n) are either +2 or -3, after 10 terms we get a(n+10), and the first 10 terms are all numbers between 0 and 9: This sequence is obviously a permutation of the nonnegative integers, with a(n) = a(n-5) + 5 for all n > 5. The strictly positive variant (starting with a(1) = 1) is given by A065186. LINKS Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,0,0,0,1,-1). FORMULA a(n) = a(n-5) + 5 for all n > 5. a(n) = A065186(n+1) - 1.
