Math::NumSeq::PrimeIndexOrder -- order of primeness by primes at prime indexes
use Math::NumSeq::PrimeIndexOrder; my $seq = Math::NumSeq::PrimeIndexOrder->new; my ($i, $value) = $seq->next;
This is the order of primeness by Neil Fernandez, counting levels of prime at prime index iterations,
i = 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 value = 0, 1, 2, 0, 3, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 4, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 2, ...
Any composite has order 0. The order for a prime is based on whether its index in the list of all primes 2,3,5,7,11,etc is a prime and how many times that prime index descent can be repeated.
For example i=17 is a prime and is at index 7 in the list of all primes. That index 7 is a prime too and is at index 4. Then stop there since 4 is not a prime. Two iterations to reach a non-prime means i=17 has value 2 as its order of primeness.
on_values => 'primes' selects the orders of just the primes 2,3,5,7,etc. The effect is to eliminate the 0s from the sequence.
1, 2, 3, 1, 4, 1, 2, 1, 1, 1, 5, 1, 2, 1, 1, 1, ...
See "FUNCTIONS" in Math::NumSeq for behaviour common to all sequence classes.
$seq = Math::NumSeq::PrimeIndexOrder->new (level => $n)
Create and return a new sequence object.
