COMMENTS

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

FORMULA

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

EXAMPLE

Let n=6, and consider intervals of the form (6*prime(m), 6*prime(m+1)).

For 2, 3, 5, ..., the intervals (12,18), (18,30), (30,42), (42,66), (66,78), (78,102), (102,114)... contain 2, 3, 3, 5, 3, 5, 4,... primes. Hence the smallest such prime is 17.
