COMMENTS

Is a(n) nonzero for all n? If so, then every n can be represented as the difference of a prime and a partial sum of the composite numbers series. See A066753 for a related possible representation of n as the difference of a prime and a partial sum of the prime numbers series.

EXAMPLE

3 + (1 + 4 + 6 + 8 + 9) = 31, a prime and 5 consecutive composite numbers starting with 1 are required to achieve this. Hence a(3) = 5.
