FORMULA

a(n) = (smallest p(m) = 1 mod 6) such that all 2*n primes p(m-n..m-1) and p(m+1..m+n) = 5 mod 6.

EXAMPLE

a(n) = 7 is sandwiched by primes 5 and 11 (both primes = 5 mod 6),

a(2) = 241 is sandwiched by 2 lesser primes 233, 239  and 2 larger primes 251, 257 (all four primes = 5 mod 6),

a(3) = 967 is sandwiched by 3 lesser primes 941, 947, 953  and 3 larger primes 971, 977, 983 (all six primes = 5 mod 6),

a(4) = 15787 is sandwiched by 4 lesser primes 15749, 15761, 15767, 15773  and 4 larger primes 15791, 15797, 15803, 15809 (all 8 primes = 5 mod 6),

a(5) = 111577 is sandwiched by 5 lesser primes 111497, 111509, 111521, 111533, 111539  and 5 larger primes 111581, 111593, 111599, 111611, 111623 (all 10 primes = 5 mod 6), etc.
