A218279 Let (p(n), p(n)+2) be the n-th twin prime pair. a(n) is the smallest k, such that there is only one prime in the interval (k*p(n), k*(p(n)+2)), or a(n)=0, if there is no such k. 2

EXAMPLE

The first pair of twin primes is (3,5). For k=1 and 2, we have the intervals (3,5) and (6,10), such that not the first but the second interval contains exactly one prime(7). Thus a(1)=2. For n=2 and k=1 to 4, we have the intervals (5,7),(10,14),(15,21), and (20,28) and only the last interval contains exactly one prime(23). Thus, a(2)=4.
