COMMENTS

The gap between 31397 and 31454 is due to the record prime gap between 31397 and 31469 being almost exactly twice the record prime gap between 15683 and 15727.

FORMULA

a(n) = A290489(n) - A290541(n).

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 47 because the next number that is a prime or twice a prime after 47 is 53, and that is a record gap of size 6.

MATHEMATICA

nxt[n_] := Block[{k = n +1}, While[ !PrimeQ[ k] && ! PrimeQ[ k/2], k++]; k]; p = 2; q = 3; mx = 0; lst = {}; While[p < 2500000000, If[q > mx + p, mx = q - p; AppendTo[ lst, p]]; p = q; q = nxt@ q]; lst (* Robert G. Wilson v, Aug 03 2017 *)
