%N Smallest prime p_n which generates n primes of the form (p^i + 2) where i represents the first n odd numbers.

%C The first 4 entries of this sequence are the first entry of the following sequences:

%C a. A001359: Lesser of twin primes.

%C b. A240110: Primes p such that p + 2 and p^3 + 2 are also prime.

%C c. A242326: Primes p for which p + 2, p^3 + 2, and p^5 + 2 are also prime.

%C d. A242327: Primes p for which (p^n) + 2 is prime for n = 1, 3, 5, and 7.
