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.

COMMENTS

Gaps between consecutive primes whose reversal is a different prime. This is to Differences between consecutive primes (A001223) as emirps (A006567) are to primes (A000040). This was indirectly suggested to me in a facebook conversation with Kevin L. Schwartz. One may use this to derive other sequences: records in emirp gaps; lower of pair of consecutive emirps with record gap; larger of pair of emirps with record gaps, by analogy with A005250, A002386, A000101.

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..87.

FORMULA

a(n) = A006567(n+1) - A006567(n).

EXAMPLE

Here are the first 9 emirps:

13, 17, 31, 37, 71, 73, 79, 97, 107.

Hence the first 8 gaps between consecutive emirps are:

(17-13) = 4.

(31-17) = 14.

(37-31) = 6.

(71-37) = 34.

(73-71) = 2 (i.e. 71 and 73 are a pair of "twin prime emirps")

(79-73) = 6.

(97-79) = 18.

(107-97) = 10.

So far, we see a minimum gap of 2, and a maximum of 34.
