COMMENTS

Or, with prime(0) = 1, numbers n such that Sum{k=0..n-1} (prime(k+1)-prime(k))*(-1)^k = Sum{k=0..n-1} (A008578(k+1)-A008578(k))*(-1)^k = 0.

There are 313 terms < 10^7, 846 terms < 10^8, 1161 terms < 10^9.

EXAMPLE

1 - A001223(1) = 1 - 1 = 0, hence 2 is a term.

1 - A001223(1) + A001223(2) - A001223(3) = 1 - 1 + 2 - 2 = 0, hence 4 is a term.
