FORMULA

Levels of primes are defined in A117563. Conjecture: there are an infinite number of prime members at each level.

EXAMPLE

The first occurrence of 1 in A117563 is a(3) which implies the third prime which is 5.

The first occurrence of 3 in A117562 is a(5) which implies the fifth prime which is 11.

The first occurrence of 5 in A117562 is a(7) which implies the seventh prime which is 17, etc.

MATHEMATICA

f[n_] := If[n == 1, 0, Block[{p = Prime@n, np = Prime[n + 1]}, (2p - np)/Min@Select[Divisors[2p - np], # >= np - p &]]]; t = Table[0, {100}]; Do[a = (f@n + 1)/2; If[a < 101 && t[[a]] == 0, t[[a]] = Prime@n; Print[{a, n, Prime@n}]], {n, 10^6}]
