COMMENTS
a(n) = 2*A104272(n) - A104272(n+1).
Paksoy proved that a(n) > 0 for n > 1.
Paksoy's theorem is the analog for Ramanujan primes of Chebychev's theorem (Bertrand's postulate) that 2*prime(n) - prime(n+1) > 0 for n > 0 (see A062234).

EXAMPLE
The only negative term is a(1) = 2*R(1) - R(2) = 2*2 - 11 = -7.
MATHEMATICA
nn = 100;
R = Table[0, {nn}]; s = 0; Do[If[PrimeQ[k], s++]; If[PrimeQ[k/2], s--]; If[s < nn, R[[s + 1]] = k], {k, Prime[3*nn]}]; R = R + 1;
