The OEIS Foundation is supported by donations from users of the OEIS and by a grant from the Simons Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). Other ways to donate

 A218014 Location of the n-th prime in its Andrica ranking. 2
 27, 6, 13, 1, 31, 4, 54, 8, 3, 100, 5, 25, 155, 28, 9, 16, 243, 19, 49, 288, 21, 62, 24, 12, 75, 422, 81, 444, 84, 2, 112, 37, 580, 11, 634, 47, 53, 150, 57, 60, 788, 20, 840, 183, 872, 10, 14, 218, 1029, 228, 80, 1074, 26, 87, 92, 99, 1237, 103, 281, 1319, 29, 15, 314, 1498, 323 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS For each consecutive prime pair p < q, d = sqrt(q) - sqrt(p) is unique. Place d in order from greatest to least and specify p. Last appearance by prime index: 1, 5, 7, 10, 13, 17, 20, 26, 28, 33, 35, 41, 43, 45, 49, ..., . Last appearance of a minimum prime by Andrica ranking: 2, 11, 17, 29, 41, 59, 71, 101, 107, 137, 149, 179, ..., . As expected, this sequence is the lesser of the twin primes beginning with the second term, 11. See A001359. LINKS Marek Wolf, A Note on the Andrica Conjecture, arXiv:1010.3945 [math.NT], 2010. EXAMPLE a(1)=27 since the first prime, 2, does not show up in the ranking until the 27th term. See A218013. a(4)=1 since the fourth prime, 7, has the maximum A_n value, see A218012; i.e., sqrt(p_n)-sqrt(p_n+1) is at a maximum.
