COMMENTS

Conjecture. For n >= 1, a(n) > 0. This conjecture does not follow from the validity of the Goldbach binary conjecture because numbers of the form 4n+2, generally speaking, also have decompositions into sums of two primes of the form 4k+1.

EXAMPLE

From Lei Zhou, Mar 19 2013: (Start)
n=1: 4n+2=6, 6=3+3; this is the only case that matches the definition, so a(1)=1;
n=3: 4n+2=14, 14=3+11=7+7; two instances found, so a(3)=2. (End)
