COMMENTS

a(n) is Pi(p_k) the count of the number of primes up to and including p_k, where p_k is the initial prime of a prime gap g = p_k+1 - p_k. All even gaps smaller than g occur at a smaller prime and the next even gap g+2 also occurs earlier.

EXAMPLE

282 is in this list because the 282nd prime is 1831, 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.
