 OFFSET 1,6 COMMENTS Conjecture: (i) a(n) > 0 for all n > 3. (ii) For any integer n > 3, there is a prime p < n such that the number of primes in the interval ((p-1)*n, p*n) is a prime. We have verified part (i) for n up to 150000. See also A238277 and A238281 for related conjectures. LINKS Zhi-Wei Sun, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..3500 Z.-W.
