Number of ways to write n = x + y + z with 0 < x <= y <= z such that 6*x1, 6*y1, 6*z1 are among those primes p (terms of A230138) with p + 2 and 2*p  5 also prime.

COMMENTS

Conjecture: (i) a(n) > 0 for all n > 2, i.e., 6*n3 with n > 2 can be expressed as a sum of three terms from A230138. Moreover, for any integer n > 12, there are three distinct positive integers x, y, z with x + y + z = n such that 6*x1, 6*y1, 6*z1 are primes in A230138.
(ii) For each integer n > 12, there are three distinct positive integers x, y, z with x + y + z = n such that 6*x1, 6*y1, 6*z1 are among those primes p with p + 2 and 2*p + 9 also prime.
Note that part (i) of this conjecture implies that there are infinitely many primes in A230138.
Indices k such that a(m)>a(k) for all m>k, are (2, 10, 26, 334, 439, 544, 551, 684, ...). The only sequence which has the first 5 terms within the 3 lines of data is A212067. (Certainly a coincidence.)  M. F. Hasler, Oct 10 2013

EXAMPLE

a(10) = 1 since 10 = 2 + 3 + 5, and the three numbers 6*21=11, 6*31=17 and 6*51=29 are terms of A230138.
