 OFFSET 1,1 LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..12. N. Makarova and others, Distributed computing project, discussion at the scientific forum dxdy.ru (in Russian), Feb. 2015. FORMULA a(n) = A175309(2n-1) (= A055382(n) for n>1). [M. F. Hasler, Apr 02 2010] a(n) = A000040(k), where k = least number such that A359440(k+n-1) >= n-1. - Peter Munn, Jan 05 2023 EXAMPLE The first term is 2 since the 2 primes 2, 3 have a gap of 1, which is trivially symmetric about its center. The second term is 5 since the 4 primes 5, 7, 11, 13 have gaps 2, 4, 2, which is symmetric about its center. The twelve primes 137, 139, 149, 151, 157, 163, 167, 173, 179, 181, 191, 193 have gaps 2, 10, 2, 6, 6, 4, 6, 6, 2, 10, 2 - symmetric about the middle, so a(6) = 137. PROG (PARI) A081235(n) = { my(last=vector(n*=2, i, prime(i)), m, i=Mod(n-2, n)); forprime(p=last[n], default(primelimit), m=last[1+lift(i+2)]+last[1+lift(i++)]=p; for(j=1, n\2, last[1+lift(i-j)]+last[1+lift(i+j+1)]==m||next(2)); return(last[1+lift(i+1)]))} \\ M.
