Invitation: celebrating 50 years of OEIS, 250000 sequences, and Sloane's 75th, there will be a conference at DIMACS, Rutgers, Oct 9-10 2014.

Index entries for sequences related to numbers of primes in various ranges

EXAMPLE

For n=2 the quadruples are 3,5,7,11; 5,7,11,13; 11,13,17,19.

MAPLE

with(numtheory): x := 1229; t1 := [seq(ithprime(i), i=1..x)]; c := 0: for i from 1 to x-3 do if t1[i]+8 = t1[i+3] then c := c+1; fi; od: c; # the values of x to use are given by A006880.

MATHEMATICA

x=168; a=Table[ Prime[ n ], {n, 1, x} ]; c=0; Do[ If[ a[ [ n ] ]+8==a[ [ n+2 ] ], c++ ], {n, 1, x-3} ]; # the values of x to use are given by A006880.
