Let N(p,i) denote the result of applying "nextprime" i times to p; a(n) = smallest prime p such that N(p,4)  p = 2*n, or 1 if no such prime exists.

COMMENTS

This sequence is the fourth row of A337767.
From Robert G. Wilson v, Dec 30 2020: (Start)
a(n) > 1 for all n >= 5.
It seems likely that for almost all values of n there is more than one integer k such that prime(k+4)  prime(k) = 2*n; a(n) = prime(k) for the smallest such k.
.
n  list of numbers k such that prime(k+4)  prime(k) = 2*n

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 3. This represents the beginning of the run of primes {3, 5, 7, 11, 13}. (13  3)/2 = 5 and it is the only prime to do so.
a(2) = 5. This represents the beginning of the run of primes {5, 7, 11, 13, 17}. (17  5)/2 = 6 and it is the first prime to do so. Others are 7, 11, 97, 101, etc.
a(3) = 17. This represents the beginning of the run of primes {17, 19, 23, 29, 31}. (31  17)/2 = 7 and it is the first prime to do so. Others are 29, 59, 227, 269, etc.
