COMMENTS
Second row of the inverse semi-binomial transform of A000040(n+1) as introduced in A213268.
The list of denominators is 1, 2, 2, ... (2 repeated), so a(n) = A210497(n) for n>1.
a(n) - prime(n) = 2*prime(n+1)-prime(n)-prime(n) are prime differences (A001223) multiplied by 2, and therefore multiples of 4.

FORMULA
a(n) ~ n log n. Apart from the first term, a(n) = 2*prime(n+1) - prime(n). - Charles R Greathouse IV, Jul 10 2012
a(n) = prime(n+2) - A036263(n), n>1. - R. J. Mathar, Jul 10 2012
