COMMENTS
There are no primes in this sequence, except 2, as all values are odd, so all differences are even. Semiprimes include: a(3) = 4, a(4) = 6, a(6) = 10, a(7) = 14, a(13) = 38, a(26) = 202, a(35) = 422, a(44) = 794, a(54) = 1478, a(59) = 1942, a(66) = 2746, a(94) = 9326.

FORMULA
{a(n)} = { | A001644(i) - A001644(j) | such that i>=j}
EXAMPLE
a(0) = 0 because A001644(2)-A001644(0) = 3 - 3 = 0.
a(1) = 2 because A001644(2)-A001644(1) = 3 - 1 = 2.
a(2) = 4 because A001644(3)-A001644(2) = 7 - 3 = 4.
a(3) = 6 because A001644(3)-A001644(1) = 7 - 1 = 6.
a(75) = 5000 because A001644(14)-A001644(7) = 5071 - 71 = 5000.
