COMMENTS

Every positive even number <= 2*n is the difference of two suitable primes <= a(n).

Sequence is nondecreasing, whereas the related sequence A020484 is not; first divergence is at 45: a(45) = 101, A020484(45) = 97.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..63.

EXAMPLE

Consider n = 45: 89, 97, 101 are consecutive primes, 2*45 = 97 - 7, but 2*44 = 101 - 13 cannot be written as b - a where a and b are primes <=97, hence a(45) = 101.
