Least initial value for an Euclid/Mullin sequence whose 4th term is prime(n). prime(1)=2 is never a fourth term, so offset=2.

FORMULA

a(n) = Min_{k} A051614(k) = prime(n).


EXAMPLE

n=14: prime(14) = 43 and an EuclidMullin sequence started with a(14) = 2 = prime(1) is {2, 3, 7, 43, 13, 53, 5, 6221671, 38709183810571, 139, ...} is A000945, the prototype EMsequence.
n=7: a(7) = prime(100) = 541, with EM sequence as follows: {541, 2, 3, 17, 139, 7, 1871, 100457892907, 19, 11047, ...}, where the 4th term equals prime(n) = prime(7) = 17.
It is characteristic but not so simple congruence relations holds of term(1) mod term(4) form for various first or 4th primes, not necessarily smallest ones. See comment at A094464.
