COMMENTS

First differences of reduced residue systems modulo primorial numbers are essentially palindromic + 1 separator term (2). The palindromic part starts and ends with p_(n+1)-1 for the n-th primorial number.

This sequence has period A005867(4)=A000010(A002110(4))=48. The 0th, first, 2nd and 3rd similar difference sequences are as follows: {1},{2},{4,2},{6,4,2,4,2,4,6,2} obtained from reduced residue systems of consecutive primorials.

Difference sequence of the "4th diatomic sequence" - A. de Polignac (1849), J. Dechamps (1907).
