COMMENTS

a(n) are the primes p(k+1) such that Af(k) > Af(m) for all m > k. This sequence relies on a heuristic calculation and there is no proof that it is correct.

EXAMPLE

a(3)=1361 because p(218)=1361, p(217)=1327 and Af(217) = sqrt(1361) - sqrt(1327) = 0.463722... is larger than any value of Af(m) for m>217.
