Table of n, a(n) for n=0..34.

EXAMPLE

a(0) = 0;

a(1) =  0 because  prime(3)/prime(2) > prime(2)/prime(1) -> 5/3 > 3/2 => a(1) = 2*0 + 0= 0;

a(2) =  1 because  prime(4)/prime(3) < prime(3)/prime(2) -> 7/5 < 5/3 => a(2) = 2*0 + 1 = 1;

a(3) =  2 because  prime(5)/prime(4) > prime(4)/prime(3) -> 11/7 > 7/5 => a(3) = 2*1 + 0 = 2.
