COMMENTS

Does every odd prime differ from some smaller prime by a squarefree integer? Or is there at least one term of this sequence equal to 0?

Indices for which a(n)<a(n-1) are n = 26, 32, 64, 79, 89, 92, 98, 100, 123, 127, 129, 133, 136, 148, 152, 159, 164, 169, 181, 193,... [From M. F. Hasler, Nov 23 2008]
