COMMENTS

a(n) = 0 for odd primes p(n) appearing in A065381.

Primes p(n) for which there is no such prime a(n) (in which case a(n)=0) are listed in A065381 = (2,127,149,251,331,337,373,...). - M. F. Hasler, Nov 23 2008

EXAMPLE

Looking at the primes less than the 10th prime = 29: 29 - 23 = 6, not a power of 2. 29-19 = 10, not a power of 2. 29-17 = 12, not a power of 2. But 29-13 = 16, a power of 2. Since p = 13 is the largest prime p such that 29 - p = a power of 2, then a(10) = 13.
