COMMENTS

Terms are equal to A023900(p) = A023900(p^2) = A023900(p^3) = ... with p prime, but is never equal to A023900(m*p) with m <> p.

abs(a(n)) + 1 is prime (A301590).

For n > 1, if and only if n can't be factored into 2*m factors, m > 0, distinct factors f > 1 where f + 1 is prime then -n is a term. - David A. Corneth, Mar 25 2018

EXAMPLE

a(1) = -1 = A023900(2^m), m > 0.

a(2) = -2 = A023900(3^m), m > 0.

a(3) = -4 = A023900(5^m), m > 0.

a(4) = -6 = A023900(7^m), m > 0.

a(5) = -10 = A023900(11^m), m > 0.

a(6) = -16 = A023900(17^m), m > 0.

A023900(13) = -12 is not a term as A023900(42)  = -12, and 42 is the product of three prime factors.

From David A. Corneth, Mar 25 2018: (Start)

10 can't be factored in an even number of distinct factors f > 1 such that f + 1 is prime, so -10 is in the sequence.

12 can be factored in an even number of distinct factors f > 1; 12 = 2 * 6 and both 2 + 1 and 6 + 1 are prime, hence -12 is not a term. (End)
