COMMENTS

The sequence is generalizable to M (rather than 3) conditions. For instance, with four equalities we obtain the following sequence: least prime p such that the 4tuple of consecutive primes (p, q, r, t) has the property that p + prime(n+3) = q + prime(n+2) = r + prime(n+1) = t + prime(n). The corresponding sequence is 5, 7, 5, 7, 31, 29, 23, 19, 17, 7, ... for n = 3, 4, ...

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 3 because the triple of consecutive primes (3, 5, 7) has the property that 3 + prime(2+2) = 5 + prime(2+1) = 7 + prime(2) = 10. For n = 2, p = 3 is unique.
a(3) = 7 because the triple of consecutive primes (7, 11, 13) has the property that 7 + prime(3+2) = 11 + prime(3+1) = 13 + prime(3) = 18. For n = 3, the other values of p are 13, 37, 67, 97, 103, 193, ... where p == 3 or 7 (mod 10).
