COMMENTS

The absolute value of a(n) is also the length of the n-th vertical edge in the graph of the "mountain path" function for prime numbers.

See A162200 for the length of the n-th horizontal component.

FORMULA

From R. J. Mathar, Jul 15 2009: (Start)

a(n) = A052288(n-1) if n >= 2, n even.

a(n) = 2 - A052288(n-1) if n >= 3, n odd. (End)

MAPLE

A031131 := proc(n) ithprime(n+2)-ithprime(n) ; end: A052288 := proc(n) A031131(n)/2 ; end: A160173 := proc(n) if n <= 2 then 2*(n-1); elif n mod 2 = 0 then A052288(n-1) ; else 2-A052288(n-1) ; fi; end: seq(A160173(n), n=1..150) ; # R. J. Mathar, Jul 15 2009
