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

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..103.

FORMULA

a(n)=abs(A000290(n)-A113425(n))=abs(A000290(n)-A113426(n)). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Oct 31 2005

EXAMPLE

n=1: n^2=1 is surrounded by primes {-2,2} and 2 is closer, so a(1)=1; n=11: n^2=121 is between primes {113,127} and closer to 127, thus a(11)=6.

MAPLE

[seq(min(nextprime(i^2)-i^2, i^2-prevprime(i^2)), i=2..256)]; n=1 computed separately.
