 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Twin prime powers, a generalization of the twin primes. The twin primes are a subsequence. From Daniel Forgues, Aug 17 2009: (Start) Numbers k such that k + (0, 2) is a prime power pair. k + (0, 2m), m >= 1, being an admissible pattern for prime pairs has high density. k + (0, 2m-1), m >= 1, being a non-admissible pattern for prime pairs, has low density [the only possible pairs are (2^a - 2m-1, 2^a) or (2^a, 2^a + 2m-1), a >= 0.] (End) LINKS Amiram Eldar, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000 (terms 1..1270 from Daniel Forgues) FORMULA a(n) = A064076(n-2) for n >= 3. - Georg Fischer, Nov 02 2018 EXAMPLE a(5) = 7 since the 5th pair of twin prime powers is (7,9), while the first four pairs are (1,3), (2,4), (3,5) and (5,7).
