COMMENTS

a(n) > 0 for n>=2. - Robert Israel, Nov 02 2014

a(n) = A053089(n) - A078422(n). - Michel Marcus, Oct 10 2016

LINKS

Robert Israel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..70

EXAMPLE

n=1: a(1) = prime(1)^prime(1+1) - prime(1+1)^prime(1) = 2^3 - 3^2 = 8 - 9 = -1.

n=3: a(3) = prime(3)^prime(4) - prime(4)^prime(3) = 5^7 - 7^5 = 78125 - 16807 = 61318.
