Neil:
I'm not sure that 37 works for a(5). a(5) starts with the 6th prime (because the first prime, 2, has been discarded per the comments) which is 13. To get 5 differences (as required for the 6th prime) we need the differences for {13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31} which are {4, 2, 4, 6, 2}. To get 5 differences for primes starting with 37 we need the differences for {37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59} which are {4, 2, 4, 6, 6}. That does not match. If, however, we start with 223 we need the differences for {223, 227, 229, 233, 239, 241} which are {4, 2, 4, 6, 2}. That does match.
Have I misunderstood something?
Best,
Harvey

Don, I agree that 37 seems to work for a(5).
I will make the corrections.
But the Mathematica program definitely gives 223.
Can some Mma expert explain why?
Bob? Harvey?
Thanks
Neil

No, yes, yes.
