COMMENTS

a(n) > 0 for n > 3 by Bertrand's postulate (and Chebyshev's proof of 1852). - Jonathan Vos Post, Aug 08 2013

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..84.

EXAMPLE

a(19) = 3, the first value smaller than a previous value, because the only primes between 19 and 2 * 19 - 2 = 36 are {23,29,31}. - Jonathan Vos Post, Aug 08 2013

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := PrimePi[2n - 2] - PrimePi[n]; a[1] = 0; Table[a[n], {n, 1, 100}] (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Oct 31 2012 *)
