A155128 Primes P(n) such that 2*P(n) - P(n+1) has all factors less than P(n+1) - P(n). This means that no prime less than P(n) can divide P(n) to give a remainder added to P(n) to give P(n+1). 0

COMMENTS

These primes need not necessarily occur before a large prime gap.

Do they occur less frequently than twin primes?

FORMULA

Found by inspecting a table of factors and primes.

EXAMPLE

For P(n)=1237 and P(n+1)=1249, 2*1237 - 1249 = 1225 = 5^2 * 7^2

and 5,7 < 1249 - 1237 = 12.
