COMMENTS

a(n) = A330557(n) - A330558(n).

Since Delta(prime(n)) grows roughly like log n, this probably changes sign infinitely often. When is the next time a(n) is zero, or the first time a(n) < 0 (if these values exist)?

EXAMPLE

n=5, 2*n+1=11: there are three primes <= 11 with Delta(p) == 2 mod 4, namely 3,5,11; and one with Delta(p) == 0 mod 4, namely 7; so a(5) = 3-1 = 2.
