COMMENTS

1) It is conjectured that for k >= 1 each leftsided halfopen interval (T(2*k  1), T(2*k + 1)] and (T(2*k), T(2*(k + 1))] contains at least one composite c_2 = 2*p_i and c_3 = 3*p_j each, p_i, p_j prime, i != j.
2) It is conjectured that for k >= 3 each leftsided halfopen interval (T(k  1), T(k)] contains at least one composite c_2 = 2*p_i or c_3 = 3*p_j, p_i, p_j prime, i != j.
3) It is conjectured that for k >= 2 each leftsided halfopen interval (T(2*k  1), T(2*k)] contains at least one composite c_3 = 3*p_j, p_j prime.
4) It is conjectured that for k >= 1 each leftsided halfopen interval (T(2*k), T(2*k + 1)] contains at least one composite c_2 = 2*p_i, p_i prime.

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 2 since (T(3  1),T(3)] = {4 = 2*2,5,6 = 2*3 = 3*2}, 2,3 prime.
