Invitation: celebrating 50 years of OEIS, 250000 sequences, and Sloane's 75th, there will be a conference at DIMACS, Rutgers, Oct 9-10 2014.

Hints
(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A016045 a(n) = smallest prime p(k) such that the gaps between the primes p(k), p(k+1), p(k+2), ..., p(k+n) are 2, 4, 6, ... 2n. 3

FORMULA

a(n)=Min{x : x=prime; {x+2k}=primes following x for k=1, .., n}

EXAMPLE

Consider consecutive primes 347, 349, 353, 359, 367. The gaps are 2, 4, 6, 8, so a(4)=347.
