COMMENTS

The sequence of successive differences is 1,2,6,8,4,14,10,12,20,18,16,... Conjecture: every even number is a term of this sequence. For every even number e there exists some k such that a(k) - a(k-1) = e.

The slowest increasing sequence of primes such that each difference between successive terms is unique. - Zak Seidov, Feb 10 2015

EXAMPLE

After 23, the next term is 37 and not 29 or 31 as 29-23= 11-5 =6, 31-23 = 19-11=8.

MATHEMATICA

diffs = {}; prms = {2}; p = 2; Do[While[p = NextPrime[p]; d = p - prms[[-1]]; MemberQ[diffs, d]]; AppendTo[diffs, d]; AppendTo[prms, p], {100}]; prms (* T. D. Noe, Nov 01 2011 *)
