EXAMPLE

2=3*(2-1)-1, so a(1)=3.

3=2*(3-1)-1, so a(2)=2.

5=2*(2+1)-1=2*(3-1)+1, so a(3)=2.

7=2*(2+1)+1=2*(3+1)-1=2*(5-1)-1, so a(4)=2.

PROG

(PARI) a(p) = {if (p == 2, return (3)); forprime (q=2, p, if (!((p-1) % q) && (isprime((p-1)/q+1) || isprime((p-1)/q-1)), return (q)); if (!((p+1) % q) && (isprime((p+1)/q+1) || isprime((p+1)/q-1)), return (q)); ); } \\ to be used with a forprime loop; Michel Marcus, Oct 28 2014
