COMMENTS

Also, smallest member of the first pair of consecutive primes such that between them is a composite number divisible by the nth prime.  Amarnath Murthy, Sep 25 2002
Except for its initial term, A006992 is a subsequence based on iteration of n > A151799(2n). The range of this sequence is a subset of A065091.  M. F. Hasler, May 08 2016

FORMULA

a(n) = A007917(A100484(n)).  R. J. Mathar, May 08 2016


EXAMPLE

n=18: p(18)=61, so the largest prime before 122 is a(18)=113.


MAPLE
