COMMENTS

Union with A124588 gives A124589. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Dec 23 2006

For any prime p > 3, if p + 4 is prime then necessarily it is the next prime. But there cannot be three consecutive primes with mutual distance 4: If p and p + 4 are prime, then p+8 is an odd multiple of 3 (cf. formula). - M. F. Hasler, Jan 15 2013

The smaller members p of cousin prime pairs (p,p+4) excluding p=3. - Marc Morgenegg, Apr 19 2016

FORMULA

a(n) = A031505(n + 1) - 4 = A029708(n) - 2.

a(n) = 1 (mod 6) for all n; (a(n) + 2)/3 = A157834(n), i.e., a(n) = 3*A157834(n) - 2. - M. F. Hasler, Jan 15 2013

EXAMPLE

79 is a term as the next prime is 79 + 4 = 83. 3 is not a term even though 3 + 4 = 7 is prime, since it is not the next one.
