 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Lesser of lonely twin primes. Old Name was: Let P1,P2,..,P6 be any 6 consecutive primes. The sequence consists of those values of P3 for which P2-P1>2, P4-P3=2 and P6-P5>2. LINKS Sebastian Petzelberger, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000 Hugo Pfoertner, FORTRAN program: Consecutive pairs of twin primes. Randall Rathbun, A study of n-twin_prime clusters among prime numbers, Posting to Number Theory List, Nov 19 1998. EXAMPLE The first lonely twin primes (A069453) are 29,31 (23 and 37 are non-twin), 41,43 (37 and 47 are non-twin), 59,61 (53 and 67 are non-twin). Of these, the lesser twins are 29,41,59, so this is how the sequence begins. 23, 27, 29, 31, 37, 41: 27-23>2, 31-29=2, 41-37>2; so 29 is in the sequence. From Hartmut F. W. Hoft, Apr 05 2016: (Start) The example should read: 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41: 23-19>2, 31-29=2, 41-37>2; so 29 is in the sequence. a(n)=A069453(2n-1), n>=1.
