COMMENTS

Such triples of primes occur only for n divisible by 3 (except for the first term with n=1).

FORMULA

p-2n, p and p+2n are three successive primes and p is the least such prime.

EXAMPLE

a(36)=23346809 because 23346809-72, 23346809 and 23346809+72 are three successive primes and 23346809 is the least such prime.
