COMMENTS

a(n) is the smaller of the two consecutive primes having a late occurring prime gap g = p_k+1 - p_k. All even gaps smaller than g occur at a smaller prime. Also, the next even gap g+2 also occurs earlier.

EXAMPLE

1831 is in this list because the next prime is 1847, giving a prime

gap of 16. All even gaps less than 16 occur before this (for smaller

primes) and the next even gap, 18, also occurs earlier.
