Let p_n=prime(n), n>=1. Then a(n) is the least prime p which differs from p_n, for which the intervals (p/2,p_n/2), (p,p_n], if p<p_n, or the intervals (p_n/2,p/2), (p_n,p], if p>p_n, contain the same number of primes, and a(n)=0, if no such prime p exists.

COMMENTS

a(n)=0 if and only if p_n is a peculiar prime, i.e., simultaneously Ramanujan (A104272) and Labos (A080359) prime (see sequence A164554).
a(n)>p_n if and only if p_n is Labos prime but not Ramanujan prime.

FORMULA

If p_n is not a Labos prime, then a(n)=A080359(npi(p_n/2)).


EXAMPLE

Let n=5, p_5=11; p=2 is not suitable, since in (1,5.5) we have 3 primes, while in (2,11] there are 4 primes. Consider p=3. Now in intervals (1.5,5.5) and (3,11] we have the same number (3) of primes. Therefore, a(5)=3. The same value we can obtain by the formula. Since 11 is not a labos prime, then a(5)=A080359(5pi(5.5))=A080359(2)=3.
