Ramanujan primes R_(3,2)(n): a(n) is the smallest number such that if x >= a(n), then pi_(3,2)(x)  pi_(3,2)(x/2) >= n, where pi_(3,2)(x) is the number of primes==2 (mod 3) <= x.

COMMENTS

All terms are primes==2 (mod 3).
For the definition of generalized Ramanujan numbers, see Section 6 of the Shevelev, Greathouse, & Moses link.
We conjecture that for all n >= 1, a(n) <= A104272(3*n). This conjecture is based on observation that, if interval (x/2, x] contains >= 3*n primes, then at least n of them are of the form 3*k+2.

FORMULA

lim(a(n)/prime(4*n)) = 1 as n tends to infinity.
