COMMENTS

Gilbreath's conjecture is equivalent to: A036277(n)>A213014(n)+2 for all n>0. See A036262 for a proof. - M. F. Hasler, Jun 02 2012

EXAMPLE

Row 1 of A036262 is 1 2 2 4 2 4 2 4 ... so a(1) = 4.

[N.B.: While the first row of the table A036261 contains the absolute first differences of the primes, table A036262 starts with the primes themselves in the uppermost row, which is obviously here referred to as the 0th row. - M. F. Hasler, Jun 02 2012]

MATHEMATICA

max = 10^4; triangle = NestList[Abs[Differences[#]]&, Prime[Range[max]], max]; a[n_] := (p = Position[triangle[[n+1]], k_ /; k>2, 1, 1]; If[p == {}, Nothing, p[[1, 1]]]); Table[a[n], {n, 0, Sqrt[max]}] (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Feb 06 2016 *)
