%N Lesser of twin Ramanujan primes.

%C By definition, a number p is a member if p and p+2 are Ramanujan primes A104272.

%C Conjecture: For all n > 570, more than 1/4 of the twin prime pairs < n are both Ramanujan primes.

%C Motivation for the conjecture is in "Ramanujan primes and Bertrand's postulate" Section 7.

%C Subsequence of A178128.

%C See A001359 and A104272 for additional comments, links, and references.

%F a(n) = A190654(2n-1) = A190654(2n) - 2.

%e a(1) = 149 because (149,151) is the 1st pair of twin primes both of which are Ramanujan primes.

%e 11 is not a member even though 11 and 13 are twin primes and 11 is a Ramanujan prime, because 13 is not also a Ramanujan prime.
