 Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 60th year, we have over 367,000 sequences, and we’ve reached 11,000 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”). Other ways to Give

 A278007 Lexicographically first sequence of primes (with no duplicates) whose absolute first differences are nonprime (with no duplicates). 1
 2, 3, 7, 13, 5, 17, 31, 11, 29, 19, 41, 67, 23, 47, 79, 37, 53, 83, 43, 71, 107, 59, 97, 131, 61, 113, 163, 73, 127, 173, 89, 149, 211, 101, 157, 223, 103, 167, 109, 181, 257, 139, 227, 307, 137, 229, 151, 233, 331, 179, 281, 349, 191, 277, 373, 193, 293, 199, 311, 197, 271 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS The sequence starts with a(1) = 2 and is always extended with the smallest integer not yet present that does not lead to a contradiction. The equivalent sequence where nonprimes and primes exchange their roles is A277997. LINKS Jean-Marc Falcoz, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10001 EXAMPLE After a(1) = 2, we cannot have a(2) = 1 as 1 is not a prime number; a(2) = 3 is OK as the absolute difference |2-3| = 1 is a nonprime; the next term a(3) cannot be 5 as the absolute difference |3-5| = 2 is a prime (and we don't want primes in the absolute differences); a(3) = 7 is OK as the absolute difference |3-7| = 4 is a nonprime not yet present in the absolute differences; the next term a(4) cannot be 5 as the absolute difference |7-5| = 2 is a prime; the next term a(4) cannot be 11 as the absolute difference |7-11| = 4 is already in the absolute differences, a(4) = 13 is OK as the absolute difference |7-13| = 6 is a nonprime not yet present in the absolute differences; the next term a(5) is now 5 as |13-5| = 8 is a nonprime not yet present in the absolute differences; the next term a(6) cannot be 11, the smallest available prime, as the absolute difference |5-11| = 6 is a nonprime already present in the absolute differences; a(6) = 17 is OK as |5-17| = 12 is a nonprime not yet present in the absolute differences; the next term a(7) cannot be 11, 19, 23 or 29 for one of the above reasons, but a(7) = 31 is OK as |17-31| = 14 is a nonprime not yet present in the absolute differences; etc. CROSSREFS Cf.
