COMMENTS

a(n) = largest prime p such that prime(n) = (p+q)/2, where q is also prime.
prime(n) <= a(n) < 2*prime(n).
Conjecture: a(n) = prime(n) only for n = 1 and 2.

FORMULA

a(n) = 2*prime(n)  A092938(n).


EXAMPLE

2*prime(18) = 122; the primes smaller than 122 are 113, 109, 107, ... in descending order. 122  113 = 9 is not prime, but 122  109 = 13 is prime, hence a(18) = 109.
