    It does not appear to be an arithmetic, geometric, nor log sequence.
    It is an esoteric sequence.

    For unknown sequences, try:
    The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!
    URL:
    Welcome to the On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences

    from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!
    Search: 3, 5, 15, 16, 38, 26, 29, 41
    the terms do not match anything in the table.
    As CB indicated, more information about the background/application is required before continuing.
