COMMENTS

All terms are odd and equal to p  2 for some prime p. Definition assumes that a(i+1) > a(i) as otherwise adding 1 to any initial subsequence would still satisfy the definition.  Chai Wah Wu, Jan 12 2019

EXAMPLE

1*3 + 2, 3*5 + 2, 1*5 + 2, etc. are primes.
9*1 + 2 = 11, 9*3 + 2 = 29, 9*5 + 2 = 47 are all prime numbers, therefore we can say that a(4) = 9.


MATHEMATICA

a = {1}; For[n = 2, n < 1000000, n++, b = Table[a[[i]]*n + 2, {i, 1, Length[ a]}]; If[Union[PrimeQ[b], PrimeQ[b]] == {True}, AppendTo[a, n]]]; a (* Stefan Steinerberger, Jun 02 2007 *)
