In the comment section of A001223, "Difference between consecutive primes",
d(p_{k}) is defined as p_{k} - p_{k-1}, so the first value of d(p_{k})
listed is d(p_{2}) = d(3) .  If the sequence is denoted by a(n), as in Remi
Eismann's comment, then according to the offset (1, 2), n = k-1.  Wouldn't
it make more sense for the values of n and k to be consistent by setting the
offset to 2, 2?


Best regards,
