COMMENTS

Contains A268925 as a subsequence.

Conjecture: the sequence is a permutation of all positive multiples of 6, i.e., all positive terms of A008588.

Conjecture: a(n) = O(n). See arXiv:2002.02115 (sect.7) for discussion.

FORMULA

a(n) = A330855(n) - A330854(n).

EXAMPLE

The first primes of the form 6k+1 are 7 and 13, so a(1)=13-7=6. The next prime 6k+1 is 19, and the gap 19-13=6 already occurred, so a new term is not added to the sequence. The next prime 6k+1 is 31, and the gap 31-19=12 is occurring for the first time; therefore a(2)=12.

PROG

(PARI) isFirstOcc=vector(9999, j, 1); s=7; forprime(p=13, 1e8, if(p%6!=1, next); g=p-s; if(isFirstOcc[g/6], print1(g", "); isFirstOcc[g/6]=0); s=p)

CROSSREFS

Cf. A002476, A014320, A058320, A330854 (primes 6k+1 preceding the first-occurrence gaps), A330855 (primes 6k+1 at the end of the first-occurrence gaps).

Sequence in context: A088345 A057826 A334543 * A268657 A232742 A268928

Adjacent sequences:  A330850 A330851 A330852 * A330854 A330855 A330856
