COMMENTS

Conjecture: (i) a(n) > 0 for all n > 1. Similarly, for any integer n > 2, k*prime(n-k) - 1 (or k^2*prime(n-k) - 1) is prime for some 0 < k < n.

(ii) Let n > 3 be an integer. Then k + prime(n-k) is prime for some 0 < k < n. Also, if n is not equal to 13, then k^2 + prime(n-k)^2 is prime for some 0 < k < n.

EXAMPLE

a(17) = 1 since 17 = 14 + 3 with 14*prime(3) + 1 = 14*5 + 1 = 71 prime.

a(19) = 1 since 19 = 18 + 1 with 18*prime(1) + 1 = 18*2 + 1 = 37 prime.
