COMMENTS

a(n) = prime(n) - g(n) or A000040(n) - A001223(n) if prime(n) - g(n) > g(n), 0 otherwise.

a(n) = 0 only for primes 2, 3 and 7.

Under the twin prime conjecture prime(n+1)-prime(n) = 2 infinitely often, and from that we can conclude that k=prime(n)-2 infinitely often. [Roderick MacPhee, Jul 24 2012]

a(n) = A062234(n) for 5 <= n <= 1000. - Georg Fischer, Oct 28 2018

EXAMPLE

n=5: prime(5) = 11, prime(6) = 13, 13 = 11 + (11 mod 3) = 11 + (11 mod 9), so A117078(5) = 3, a(n) = 9 and A117563(5) = 9/3 = 3. Thus 11 has level 3 and so is a member of A117873.

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := If[n == 1 || n == 2 || n == 4, 0, 2Prime[n] - Prime[n + 1]]; Array[a, 62] (* Robert G. Wilson v, May 09 2006 *)

CROSSREFS

Cf. A062234, A117078; essentially the same as A117563.
