Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

First index i such that NextPrime[p2=2*Prime[i]]-p2 is 2n-1; case n=1 corresponds to Sophie Germain (SG) primes, others may be called SG n-primes. Distance between 2*(n-th prime) and next prime in A059787.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..45.

EXAMPLE

a(54) = 342337 because difference between 2*p(342337) and next prime is 2*54 -1 = 107 and 342337 is the smallest such index.

PROG

(PARI) a(n) = {i = 1; while (nextprime(p2=2*prime(i)) - p2 != 2*n-1, i++); i; } \\ Michel Marcus, Oct 03 2013
