%N Sets of three consecutive primes with equal gaps: prime(n) + 2*m = prime(n+1) and prime(n+1) + 2*m = prime(n+2) for some m.

%C A Goedel prime equivalent to if A Implies B and B implies C then A Implies C.

%C In H. G. Wells's War of the Worlds, the Martians use a base-three number system: in such a system 3^n+2 instead of 2^n+1 primes would be important. Likewise instead of pairs of primes, triples of primes would be studied as "interesting", so I call these Martian Prime triples as that's what gave me the idea for finding them.

%C Not monotone: a(18) = 263 > 257 = a(19). - _Charles R Greathouse IV_, Dec 17 2016
