%N a(n) is the least prime p such that p is greater than any previous term and is representable as the arithmetic mean of two other primes in exactly n different ways.

%C A number p is representable as the arithmetic mean of two other primes in n ways if there are n values of k such that p + k and p - k are both prime.

%C If the restriction that a(n) must be greater than previous terms is removed then the sequence would be A126204. - _Andrew Howroyd_, Jan 12 2020

%C The next term if it exists > 10^6. - _Andrew Howroyd_, Jan 12 2020

%e a(1) = 5 because 5+-2 are primes.

%e a(2) = 11 because 11+-6, 11+-8 are primes.

%e a(3) = 17 because 17+-6, 17+-12, 17+=14 are primes.

%e a(4) = 37 because 37+-6, 37+-24, 37+-30, 37+-34 are primes.

%e a(5) = 53 because 53+-6, 53+-30, 53+-36, 53+-48, 53+-50 are primes.
