COMMENTS

This eliminates the impossibles out of A007610 and the 'or' in the title is the exclusive or.


LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..84.


EXAMPLE

a(3) = 5 because 5+7+11 = prime 23 and a(10) = 3 because 3+5+7+11+13+17+19+23+29+31 = 158 and half that or 79 is a prime.


MATHEMATICA

Do[k = n; a = Table[Prime[i], {i, 1, n} ]; While[ !PrimeQ[Plus @@ a] && !PrimeQ[Plus @@ a/2], k++; a = Drop[a, 1]; a = Append[a, Prime[k]]]; Print[a[[1]]], {n, 1, 100} ]
