COMMENTS

Surprisingly, the nonzero terms of the sequence seem to occur in well-defined intervals separated by increasingly long intervals of zero terms, with the position of one nonzero interval located at a value of n approximately 2.4 times that of the previous one. See the link for a graph of {a(n)} vs. Log(n) to the base 2.4, for n in {1,2,...,5000}. Further,each of the integer quotients (Prime[n]+ Prime[k])/(n+k) are the same throughout each interval of nonzero values of a(n) and in fact the values of the quotients are precisely the ordinal of that interval of nonzero values.

EXAMPLE

The first five primes are 2,3,5,7,11. We find that 5+1 does not divide 11+2, but 5+2 divides 11+3, 5+3 divides 11+5 and 5+4 divides 11+7. Therefore a(5)=3.
