COMMENTS

a(n) is the partial sum of the number of integers separating each successive pair of twin prime numbers less than and up to the nth pair of twin primes.

FORMULA

a(n) = A001359(n+1)  2  3*n.  Robert Israel, Aug 17 2014


EXAMPLE

For n=4, a(4)=15 because the number of integers separating the first 4 pairs of twin prime numbers are as follows, 0 between (3,5) and (5,7), 3 between (5,7) and (11,13), 3 between (11,13) and (17,19), and 9 between (17,19) and (29,31). 0+3+3+9=15 so a(4)=15.
