A066491 Twin prime gaps: Pairs n, n+1 such that f(n) = f(n+1), where f is the prime gaps function given by f(m) = p(m+1)-p(m) and p(m) denotes the m-th prime. 0

COMMENTS

Each pair of a(n) yields a triple of primes in arithmetic progression, e.g. 2,3 yields the prime triple 3,5,7.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..56.

EXAMPLE

2,3 is a twin prime gap since f(2) = f(3) = 2. 54,55 is a twin prime gap since f(54) = f(55) = 6.

MATHEMATICA

(to find the smaller number in each twin prime gap) f[n_] := Prime[n + 1] - Prime[n]; Select[Range[1, 10^3], f[ # ] == f[ # + 1] &]
