COMMENTS

Previous name was: Differences in triples of primes.

Minimal difference is 6 (for 3-tuplet) except first triple. Repeating 6 means successive 3-tuplets, see A088683, A088684..

FORMULA

Partition primes in triples starting with 5: {5, 7, 11}, {13, 17, 19}, {23, 29, 31}, {37, 41, 43}, {47, 53, 59}, {61, 67, 71}, {73, 79, 83}, {89, 97, 101}, {103, 107, 109}. Sequence gives differences between lesser and larger primes in triples.
