 A075321 Pair the odd primes so that the n-th pair is (p, p+2n) where p is the smallest prime not included earlier such that p and p+2n are primes and p+2n also does not occur earlier: (3, 5), (7, 11), (13, 19), (23, 31), (37, 47), (17, 29), (53, 67) ... This is the sequence of the first member of every pair. 3

%C Question: Is every prime a member of some pair?

%C If the distance between the prime pairs is not required to be 2n, we get A031215. - _R. J. Mathar_, Nov 26 2014

%C a(n) = A075323(2*n-1).

%H Reinhard Zumkeller, <a href="/A075321/b075321.txt">Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000</a>

%e a(4)=23: For the 4th pair though 17 is the smallest prime not occurring earlier, 17+8 = 25 is not a prime and 23 + 8 = 31 is a prime.
