COMMENTS

All terms of A005250 are in the sequence, but some terms of A005250 appear in this sequence more than once.

a(n) is the gap between the n-th and (n+1)-th sublists of prime numbers defined in A348178. - Ya-Ping Lu, Oct 19 2021

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..79.

EXAMPLE

a(21) = a(22) = 34 because prime(218) - prime(217) = prime(1060) - prime(1059) = 34 and prime(n+1) - prime(n) is less than 34, for n < 1059 and n not equal to 217.

MATHEMATICA

f[n_] := Prime[n+1]-Prime[n]; v={}; Do[ If[f[n]>=If[n==1, 1, v[[ -1]]], v1=n; v=Append[v, f[v1]]; Print[v]], {n, 105000000}]
