A308987 In the sequence {n^2+1} (A002522), color the primes red. When the number of terms m between successive red terms sets a new record, write down m+1. 1

COMMENTS

This sequence represents the highest gaps, given by number of terms (including the starting prime) in sequence A002522 between terms which are prime.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..31.

EXAMPLE

n=6 --> 6^2+1 = 37, prime

n=7 --> 7^2+1 = 50, composite

n=8 --> 8^2+1 = 65, composite

n=9 --> 9^2+1 = 82, composite

n=10 --> 10^2+1 = 101, prime

...so here m=3 and we get the third term, m + 1 = 10 - 6 = 4

MATHEMATICA
