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

Previous name was "Sum of the middle pair in the n-term sequence 2, 3, 5, ..., prime(n)." - Jon E. Schoenfield, Oct 12 2015

The bisections are the doubled primes (A100484) and the sums of adjacent primes (A001043). - R. J. Mathar, Sep 11 2011

FORMULA

a(2n-1) = 2 prime(n), a(2n) = prime(n) + prime(n+1), n = 1,2,... - Zak Seidov, Jan 15 2014

a(n) = 2*A063934(n-1) for n>2. - Michel Marcus, Oct 13 2015

EXAMPLE

4 = sumtwice(2); 5 = sum(2,3); 6 = 2, sumtwice(3), 5, 7; 8 = 2, sum(3,5), 7, 11;
