COMMENTS

Original name: Lower prime of a difference of 6 between consecutive primes.

Conjecture: The sequence is infinite and for every n >= 7746, a(n+1) < a(n)^(1+1/n). Namely for n >= 7746, a(n)^(1/n) is a strictly decreasing function of n (See comment lines of the sequence A248855). - Jahangeer Kholdi and Farideh Firoozbakht, Nov 29 2014

EXAMPLE

23 is a term as the next prime 29 = 23 + 6.

MAPLE

A031924 := proc(n)

    option remember;

    if n = 1 then

        return 23;

    else

        p := nextprime(procname(n-1)) ;

        q := nextprime(p) ;

        while q-p <> 6 do

            p := q ;

            q := nextprime(p) ;

        end do:

        return p;

    end if;

end proc: # R. J. Mathar, Jan 23 2013
