Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

Computing and storing the indices of lower or upper twin primes is useful in computing twinl(n) or the n-th lower twin prime from a large file of primes.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..42.

FORMULA

Every prime has an index denoting the position the prime is in the sequence 1,2,3,... For example, 5 is the 3rd prime number so 5 has index 3, 3 has index 2 etc. It is when an upper twin prime's lower member has an index that is also prime that we list the upper prime.

EXAMPLE

13 is the upper twin prime of the pair 11,13. The lower member 11 is the 5th prime number and the index 5 is prime so 13 is in the table.

PROG

(PARI) g(n) = for(x=1, n, p1=prime(x); p2=prime(x+1); if(p1+2==p2&&isprime(x), print1 (p2", ")))
