COMMENTS

We only consider gaps that set new records. The first gap of size 12 occurs (at 221167421) before the first gap of size 11 (at 262315466) and so for n>10, the nth term in this sequence does not correspond to the first gap of length n. See A020753.  Nathan McNew, Dec 02 2020

FORMULA

a(n) = A020755(n)  A020753(n); also a(n) = A020754(n+[n>10])  1 at least for n < 19.  M. F. Hasler, Dec 28 2015


EXAMPLE

The first gap in A005117 occurs between 1 and 2 and has length 1. The next largest gap occurs between 3 and 5 and has length 2. The next largest gap is between 7 and 10 and has length 3. Etc.
