COMMENTS

The plot is very interesting.

a(A178953(n)) = 0.

EXAMPLE

a(3)=1 because 5=prime(3)=(prime(3-1)+prime(3+1))/2=(3+7)/2.

MATHEMATICA

Table[k=n-1; While[Prime[n-k]+Prime[n+k] != 2*Prime[n], k--]; k, {n, 100}]

PROG

(Sage) A178609 = lambda n: next(k for k in range(n)[::-1] if nth_prime(n-k)+nth_prime(n+k) == 2*nth_prime(n)) [D. S. McNeil, Dec 29 2010]

(Haskell)

a178609 n = head [k | k <- [n - 1, n - 2 .. 0], let p2 = 2 * a000040 n,

                      a000040 (n - k) + a000040 (n + k) == p2]
