A082512 a(n) = p is the smallest prime introducing a consecutive prime-difference pattern as follows: [2,2n,2], i.e., [p, p+2, p+2+2n, p+2+2n+2] are consecutive primes. Increasing middle prime gap in the immediate neighborhood of two small gaps(=2); a(n) = 0 if no such pattern exists. 1

%N a(n) = p is the smallest prime introducing a consecutive prime-difference pattern as follows: [2,2n,2], i.e., [p, p+2, p+2+2n, p+2+2n+2] are consecutive primes. Increasing middle prime gap in the immediate neighborhood of two small gaps(=2); a(n) = 0 if no such pattern exists.

%C It is conjectured that the twin primes in the neighborhood can be separated by an arbitrarily large gap.

%F a(n) = 0 if n != 2 (mod 3). - _Amiram Eldar_, Jan 21 2020

%e a(4) = 0 because no p can begin a [2,8,2] gap pattern since p mod 6 = 5 must hold and following 3 primes give modulo 6 residues 1, 3, and 5, so p + 2 + 8 is not prime; a(n)=0 if 2n congruent to 0 or 2 mod 6; a(n) has solution for n = 6k + 4;

%e For n=16, the 4 corresponding primes and 3 differences are {1931 [2] 1933 [16] 1949 [2] 1951}.
