Harvey P. Dale, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000

FORMULA

a(2n) = A046933(n+1). - R. J. Mathar, Jun 27 2009

a(2n+1) = 1, for n>=1. - Michel Marcus, Feb 21 2020

EXAMPLE

a(1)=2 because there are two consecutive primes (2 and 3), a(2)=1 (4);

a(5)=1 (7), a(6)=3 because there are three consecutive composite (8,9,10).
