COMMENTS

Conjecture: There will always be an x such that a(x+1) - a(x) = k for k=1,2.. However, x becomes large when k > 70.

FORMULA

Prime(n) = the n-th prime. Pi(x) = number of primes <= x.

MATHEMATICA

PROG

(PARI) primexmpix(n, k) = { local(x, y, z); for(x=1, n, y=prime(x)-primepi(x); z=prime(x+1)-primepi(x+1); if(z-y == k, print1(y", ") ) ) }
