 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS 3 of the first 5 values of record gaps in odd semiprimes are also record merits = [A046315(k+1)-A046315(k)]/log(A046315(k)]/), namely: (15 - 9) / log(9) = 6.28770982; (111 - 95) / log(95) = 8.09010923; (287 - 267) / log(267) = 8.24228608. It is easy to prove that there are gaps of arbitrary length in even semiprimes (A100484); can we prove that there are gaps of arbitrary length in odd semiprimes (A046315) and in semiprimes (A001358)? The record gaps have lengths 6, 8, 10, 16, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 32, 36, 38, 40, 44, 50, 52, 60, 64, 70, 74. - T. D. Noe, Feb 03 2006 LINKS FORMULA {a(n)} = {A046315(k) such that A046315(k+1)-A046315(k) is a record}.
