 OFFSET 4,1 COMMENTS Straddle primes that occur only once on either side of the composite number are lower and upper twin primes respectively. LINKS FORMULA Straddle primes are the nearest primes preceding and following a composite number n. EXAMPLE The first straddle prime pair is 3 and 5 which straddle the composite number 4. PROG (PARI) strad(n) = { my(y, pp, np); for(x=1, n, y=composite(x); pp=precprime(y); np=nextprime(y); print1(pp", ") ) } CROSSREFS Sequence in context: A297346 A211517 A254935 * A103470 A316852 A307120 Adjacent sequences:  A104196 A104197 A104198 * A104200 A104201 A104202 KEYWORD easy,nonn AUTHOR Cino Hilliard, Mar 13 2005 STATUS approved
