%N Primes which are the nearest integer to the geometric mean of the previous prime and the following prime.

%C The geometric mean of two primes p and q is sqrt(pq).

%e The prime before 3 is 2 and the prime after 3 is 5. 2 * 5 = 10 and the geometric mean of 2 and 5 is therefore sqrt(10) = 3.16227766..., which rounds to 3. Therefore 3 is in the sequence.

%e The geometric mean of 7 and 13 is 9.539392... which rounds up to 10, well short of 11, hence 11 is not in the sequence.

%p A := {}: for n from 2 to 1000 do p1 := ithprime(n-1): p := ithprime(n); p2 := ithprime(n+1): if p = round(sqrt(p1*p2)) then A := `union`(A, {p}) end if end do; A := A;
