Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

A164958 Primes p with the property that if p/3 is in the interval (p_m, p_(m+1)), where p_m>=3 and p_k is the k-th prime, then the interval (3p_m, p) contains a prime 2

COMMENTS

For k>1 (not necessarily integer), we call a Labos k-prime L_n^(k) the prime a_k(n) which is the smallest number such that pi(a_k(n)) - pi(a_k(n)/k)= n. Note that, the sequence of all primes corresponds to the case of "k=oo". Let p be a k-Labos prime, such that p/k is in the interval (p_m, p_(m+1)), where p_m>=3 and p_n is the n-th prime. Then the interval (k*p_(m), p) contains a prime. Conjecture. For every k>1 there exist non-k-Labos primes, which possess the latter property. For example, for k=2, the smallest such prime is 131. Problem. For every k>1 to estimate the smallest non-k-Labos prime, which possess the latter property. [From Vladimir Shevelev, Sep 02 2009]

All 3-Labos primes are in this sequence.

EXAMPLE

If p=61, the p/3 is in the interval (19, 23); we see that the interval (57, 61) contains a prime (59). Thus 61 is in the sequence.
