 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS A subsequence of A002386 (assuming that there is an n-digit term in A002386 for all values of n). - M. F. Hasler, Apr 28 2014 LINKS Thomas R. Nicely, First occurrence prime gaps FORMULA A073861 = A000040 o A241623. - M. F. Hasler, Apr 28 2014 a(n) = max { p in A002386 | nextprime(p) < 10^n } (under the assumption given in the comment). - M. F. Hasler, Apr 28 2014 EXAMPLE a(3) = 887, the next prime is 907, 907-887=20 is the maximal possible difference of two 3-digit primes and no smaller pair exhibits this property.
