%N Least prime such that the distance to the two adjacent primes is 2n or greater.

%C Erdos and Suranyi call these reclusive primes and prove that such a prime exists for all n. Except for a(0), the record values are in A023186.

%e a(3)=53 because the adjacent primes 47 and 59 are at distance 6 and all smaller primes have a closer distance.
