COMMENTS

Conjecture: |a(1)|+|a(2)|+..+|a(n)| ~ prime(n). - Thomas Ordowski, Jul 21 2012

Sum(i=1..n-1, a(i)) = A046933(n), n >= 1. - Daniel Forgues, Apr 15 2014

Sum(i=2..n-1, a(i)) = prime(n+1)-prime(n)-2; Sum(i=2..n-1, a(i))=0 whenever prime(n) is a lesser of twin primes. - Hamdi Murat Yildirim, Jun 24 2014

FORMULA

a(A064113(n)) = 0. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Jan 20 2012

a(n) = prime(n) + prime(n+2) - 2*prime(n+1). - Thomas Ordowski, Jul 21 2012

a(n) = A001223(n+1) - A001223(n). - R. J. Mathar, Sep 19 2013

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 5 + 11 - 2*7 = 16 - 14 = 2.
