 A152073 a(n) = largest prime < p(n) such that p(n) - a(n) is a power of 2, where p(n) is the n-th prime; a(n) = 0 if no such prime exists. 2

 OFFSET 2,1 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 LINKS 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. PROG (PARI) A152073(n)=local( q=n=prime(n)); while( q=precprime(q-1), n-q==1<
