FORMULA

a(n) = A175309(2n1) (= A055382(n) for n>1). [M. F. Hasler, Apr 02 2010]


EXAMPLE

The first term is 2 since the 2 primes 2, 3 have a gap of 1, which is trivially symmetric about its center.
The second term is 5 since the 4 primes 5, 7, 11, 13 have gaps 2, 4, 2, which is symmetric about its center.
The twelve primes 137, 139, 149, 151, 157, 163, 167, 173, 179, 181, 191, 193 have gaps 2, 10, 2, 6, 6, 4, 6, 6, 2, 10, 2  symmetric about the middle, so a(6) = 137.
