COMMENTS

Sequence starts for n=2 as no solution for n=1.
g is a multiple of 6 as otherwise 6^n+k, 6^n+k+g, or 6^n+k+2*g is divisible by 2 or 3.  Jonathan Sondow, Dec 16 2013

FORMULA



EXAMPLE

6^2+11=47, 6^2+11+6=53, 6^2+11+2*6=59 are consecutive primes and k=11 is minimal, so a(2)=6.  Jonathan Sondow, Dec 16 2013
