 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS If you graph a(n) vs. n, an interesting pattern with random-looking fluctuations begins to emerge. As you go farther along the n-axis, greater are the number of Symmetric primes, on average. The smallest count of a(.)=1 occurs only once at the very beginning. I suspect all a(n) are > 0. If one could prove this, it would imply that Symmetric primes are infinite. LINKS FORMULA #{ A090190(j): A001248(n) < A090190(j) < A006094(n)}. EXAMPLE The square of the first prime is 2^2=4 and the product of the first and second prime is 2*3=6. Within this interval, there is 1 Symmetric Prime, which is 5. Hence a(1)=1. The second term, a(2)=2, refers to the two Symmetric primes 11 and 13 within the interval (9,15). CROSSREFS Cf. A090190, A090191.
