The OEIS mourns the passing of Jim Simons and is grateful to the Simons Foundation for its support of research in many branches of science, including the OEIS.
The OEIS is supported by the many generous donors to the OEIS Foundation.

 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS In general (except possibly when it begins with 2), the sum of an even number of consecutive primes is even - hence the restriction to odd chain lengths. LINKS T. D. Noe, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..10000 EXAMPLE 17 is the first prime in the chain 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, which is the earliest chain of 2 * 3 + 1 = 7 consecutive primes whose sum, 197, is prime. Hence a(3) = 17. MATHEMATICA With[{prs=Prime[Range[1000]]}, First[#]&/@Flatten[Table[Select[ Partition[ prs, 2n+1, 1], PrimeQ[Total[#]]&, 1], {n, 0, 80}], 1]] (* Harvey P.
