 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS Alternatively, a(n) is the smallest positive k such that n + k is prime. - N. J. A. Sloane, Nov 18 2015 Except for a(0) and a(1), a(n) is the least k such that gcd(n!, n + k) = 1. - Robert G. Wilson v, Nov 05 2010 This sequence uses the "strictly larger" variant A151800 of the nextprime function, rather than A007918. Therefore all terms are positive and a(n) = 1 if and only if n + 1 is a prime. - M. F. Hasler, Sep 09 2015 For n > 0, a(n) and n are of opposite parity. Also, by Bertrand's postulate (actually a theorem), for n > 1, a(n) < n. - Zak Seidov, Dec 27 2018 LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..5000 Brăduţ Apostol, Laurenţiu Panaitopol, Lucian Petrescu, and László Tóth, Some properties of a sequence defined with the aid of prime numbers, arXiv:1503.01086 [math.NT], 2015.

Greubel, May 12 2023 EXAMPLE a(30) = 1 because 31 is the next prime greater than 30 and 31 - 30 = 1. a(31) = 6 because 37 is the next prime greater than 31 and 37 - 31 = 6.
