COMMENTS

a(n) is the first occurrence of a difference of 2n between A000959(k+1) and A000959(k).  Robert G. Wilson v, May 12 2006
a(136) > 10^9.  Donovan Johnson, Dec 07 2011
Unknown terms a(166), a(176), a(178), a(182), and a(185) through a(209) are all greater than 10^10.  Kevin P. Thompson, Nov 24 2021

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 79 since the lucky numbers A000959(20) = 79 and A000959(21) = 87 are the first consecutive pair with difference 2*4 = 8.
