LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..36.

FORMULA

Min_{p | p mod (nextprime(p) - p) = 2n-1};

a(n) is the least prime with A000040(n) mod A001223(n) = 2n-1.

EXAMPLE

The residue p mod d = 5 = 2*3 - 1 for primes {23, 57, 53, 83, ...} of which the first one is 23, so a(3)=23.

MATHEMATICA

Module[{nn=100000, pm}, pm={#[[1]], Mod[#[[1]], #[[2]]-#[[1]]]}&/@Partition[ Prime[Range[nn]], 2, 1]; Table[SelectFirst[pm, #[[2]]==2n-1&], {n, 40}]] [[All, 1]] (* Harvey P. Dale, Aug 07 2019 *)

PROG

(PARI) a(n) = {my(p = 2); forprime(q=3, , if (q % (q-p) == (2*n-1), return (p)); p = q; ); } \\ Michel Marcus, Jul 09 2018
