%F Conjecture: for n >= 5, a(n) equals the smallest integer of the form (A000040(s+1) + ... + A000040(s+n^2))/n = (A007504(s+n^2) - A007504(s))/n of the same parity as n.

%F a(2) = 0, otherwise a(n) = (1/n) * Sum_{m=k..n^2+k-1} A000040(m), where k = A049084(A104157(n). - _Arkadiusz Wesolowski_, Nov 06 2015

%F In the above, A049084 could be replaced by A000720 = primepi. - _M. F. Hasler_, Oct 29 2018
