 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. Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS A sequence of consecutive primes prime(k), ..., prime(k+r), r >= 1, is called a chain of primes if i*prime(i) + (i+1)*prime(i+1) is prime (the linking prime for prime(i) and prime(i+1), cf. A119487) for i from k to k+r-1. A chain of primes prime(k), ..., prime(k+r) is maximal if it is not part of a longer chain, i.e. if neither (k-1)*prime(k-1) + k*prime(k) nor (k+r)*prime(k+r) + (k+r+1)*prime(k+r+1) is prime. A chain of primes has two or more members; a prime is called secluded if it is not member of a chain of primes (cf. A152657). LINKS Klaus Brockhaus, Table of n, a(n) for n=1..10000 EXAMPLE 3*prime(3) + 4*prime(4) = 3*5 + 4*7 = 43 is prime and 4*prime(4) + 5*prime(5) = 4*7 + 5*11 = 83 is prime, so 5, 7, 11 is a chain of primes. 2*prime(2) + 3*prime(3) = 2*3 + 3*5 = 21 is not prime and 5*prime(5) + 6*prime(6) = 5*11 + 6*13 = 133 is not prime, hence 5, 7, 11 is maximal and prime(3) = 5 is the beginning of a maximal chain.
