FORMULA

A000040[a(n)]=A006560(n+2). - R. J. Mathar, Aug 10 2007

a(n) = A000720(A006560(n+2)). - Jens Kruse Andersen, Jun 14 2014

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 659426 because d(659426) = d(659426+1) = d(659426+2) = d(6594286+3) or 9843019, 9843049, 9843079, 9843109, 9843139 are five consecutive primes with same difference and prime(659426) = 9843019 is the smallest prime number with this property.

Also a(4) = 6904737 because d(6904737) = d(6904737+1) = ... = d(6904737+4) or 121174811, 121174841, 121174871, 121174901, 121174931, 121174961 are six consecutive primes with same difference and prime(6904737) = 121174811 is the smallest prime number with this property.
