COMMENTS

Conjecture: a(n) > 0 for all n > 1. Also, any integer n > 3 can be written as x + y with 0 < x <= y such that x!*y 1 is prime.
We have verified the conjecture for n up to 10^6.

EXAMPLE

a(9) = 1 since 9 = 3 + 6 with 3!*6 + 1 = 37 prime.
a(12) = 1 since 12 = 4 + 8 with 4!*8 + 1 = 193 prime.
