COMMENTS

Conjecture: this sequence is unbounded, as implied by Dickson's conjecture. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Oct 09 2012

Conjecture: 0 appears infinitely often. - Jon Perry, Oct 10 2012

First differences of A079952. - Peter Munn, Oct 19 2017

Hans Havermann, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000

FORMULA

a(n) = pi(prime(n + 1)/2) - pi(prime(n)/2), where pi is the prime counting function and prime(n) is the n-th prime.

Equivalently, a(n) = A079952(n+1) - A079952(n). - Peter Munn, Oct 19 2017

The average order of a(n) is 1/2, that is, a(1) + a(2) + ... + a(n) ~ n/2. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Oct 09 2012

EXAMPLE

a(30) = 2 because there are two primes between prime(30)/2 [=113/2] and prime(31)/2 [=127/2]; i.e., the numbers 59 and 61.
