COMMENTS

Or, bad primes (version 1): primes not in A046869.  Jonathan Vos Post, Aug 20 2007
The idea can be extended by defining a geometrically weak prime of order k to be a prime which is less than the geometric mean of r neighbors on both sides for all r = 1 to k and not true for r = k+1. A similar extension could be defined for the sequence A051635.
It is easy to show that, except for the twin prime pair (3,5), the larger prime of every twin prime pair is in this sequence. The smaller prime of the pair is always in A046869.  T. D. Noe, Feb 19 2008

FORMULA

prime(k)^2 <= prime(k1)*prime(k+1).


EXAMPLE

23 belongs to this sequence as 23^2 = 529 < 19*29 = 551.
