COMMENTS

I computed a couple of thousand primes with EXCEL and ordered them accordingly. There is a very small chance that very large prime numbers will change the order of the given terms above.

This sequence only makes sense if the sequence n -> sqrt(p_(n+1)) - sqrt(p_n) is a zero-sequence which is a hard unsolved problem. See also Andrica's conjecture.

For each consecutive prime pair p < q, the number d = sqrt(q) - sqrt(p) is unique. Place d in order from greatest to least and specify p. See Table II in Wolf. A rearrangement of the primes. - Robert G. Wilson v, Oct 18 2012
