COMMENTS

Gaps between consecutive primes whose reversal is a different prime. This is to Differences between consecutive primes (A001223) as emirps (A006567) are to primes (A000040). This was indirectly suggested to me in a facebook conversation with Kevin L. Schwartz. One may use this to derive other sequences: records in emirp gaps; lower of pair of consecutive emirps with record gap; larger of pair of emirps with record gaps, by analogy with A005250, A002386, A000101.

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..87.

FORMULA

a(n) = A006567(n+1) - A006567(n).

EXAMPLE

Here are the first 9 emirps:

13, 17, 31, 37, 71, 73, 79, 97, 107.

Hence the first 8 gaps between consecutive emirps are:

(17-13) = 4.

(31-17) = 14.

(37-31) = 6.

(71-37) = 34.

(73-71) = 2 (i.e. 71 and 73 are a pair of "twin prime emirps")

(79-73) = 6.

(97-79) = 18.

(107-97) = 10.

So far, we see a minimum gap of 2, and a maximum of 34.
