COMMENTS

Conjecture. In the supposition that there are infinitely many twin primes, every term beginning the fourth is 2 or in A001359 (lesser of twin primes).

FORMULA

lim a(n) = infinity, as n goes to infinity.

EXAMPLE

Let n=9, and consider intervals of the form (9*prime(m), 9*prime(m+1)).

For 2, 3, 5, ..., the intervals (18,27), (27,45), (45,63), (63,99), (99,117), (117,153), (153,171)... contain 2, 5, 4, 7, 5, 6, 3,... primes. Hence the smallest such prime is 17.
