Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

We list the twin primes in staircase fashion as follows.

3

5_5

__7_11

____13_17

_______19_29

__________31_41

_____________.._..

________________tu(n)_tl(n)

______________________tu(n+1)

...

where tl(n) = n-th lower twin prime, tu(n) = n-th upper twin prime. Then a(n) = tl(n) + tu(n) + tl(n+1).
