COMMENTS

If n=A047845(i)^2 for some i, i.e. if n has the form ((k1)/2)^2 with k odd but not prime, then a(n)=0. It is conjectured that these are the only values of n for which a(n)=0; this would follow from Schinzel's hypothesis.

EXAMPLE

a(8) = 17 because 8 + 17 is the first square that can be made by adding a prime to 8.
a(16) = 0 because 16 + p cannot be x^2, since then p = x^2  16 = (x4)(x+4).


MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := If[IntegerQ[s=Sqrt[n]]&&!PrimeQ[2s+1], 0, For[x=Ceiling[s], True, x++, If[PrimeQ[x^2n], Return[x^2n]]]]


PROG

(PARI) for(n=1, 100, f=0:forprime(p=2, 10^7, if(issquare(p+n), f=p:break)): if(f, print1(f", "), print1("0, ")))
