(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A127165 a(n) = the maximum prime S possible, if S = product of b(k)'s + product of c(k)'s, where the distinct positive integers <= n are partitioned into the two sets {b(k)} and {c(k)}. a(n) = 0 if no prime S exists for that n. 3

COMMENTS

a(0)=a(1)=2 because the product over the empty set is defined here as 1. For S to be a prime, the positive integers <= n, except 1 and the primes > n/2, must all be together in either {b(k)} or {c(k)}. If p is a prime where n/2 < p <= n, then it is possible that p is in either product of the S sum, as can 1. Terms calculated by W. Edwin Clark.

EXAMPLE

For n = 6 we have the only prime S (and so the maximum prime S) with S = 1*2*3*4*6 + 5 = 149.

MATHEMATICA

f[n_] := Block[{d = Divisors[Times @@ Select[Range[n], PrimeQ[ # ] && 2# > n &]]}, Select[Union[d + n!/d], PrimeQ]]; If[ # == {}, 0, Last[ # ]] & /@ Array[f, 30, 0] (* Ray Chandler, Feb 14 2007 *)
