COMMENTS

The function in Brocard's Conjecture, which states that for n >= 2, a(n) >= 4.

The lines in the graph correspond to prime gaps of 2, 4, 6, ... .  - T. D. Noe, Feb 04 2008

Lengths of blocks of consecutive primes in A000430 (union of primes and squares of primes). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Sep 23 2011

In the n-th step of the sieve of Eratosthenes, all multiples of prime(n) are removed. Then a(n) gives the number of new primes obtained after the n-th step. - Jean-Christophe Hervé, Oct 27 2013
