COMMENTS

a(1)=0 is the only zero term up to n=200000.
It is hypothesized that a(1)=0 is the only zero term of this sequence.
The histogram for 1<=n<=60000 of this sequence shows the shape of a distribution with mode=10, and it has a regional maximum at 20.

EXAMPLE

For n=1, 2n=2, which cannot be decomposed into the sum of two primes, so a(1)=0.
For n=2, 2n = 4 = 2+2, and 22 = 0 = 2^01, so the difference from 2^0 is 1, which satisfies the condition. So a(2)=1;
...
For n=5, 2n = 10 = 3+7 = 5+5. 3*27 = 1 = 2^0 and 55 = 0 = 2^01; both satisfy the condition, so a(5)=2.
...
For n=35, 2n = 70 = 3+67 = 11+59 = 17+53 = 23+47 = 29+41. These five Goldbach decompositions make A045917(35)=5. Among these, 3*2267 = 1 = 2^0; 11*559 = 4 = 2^2; 17*353 = 2 = 2^1; 23*247 = 1 satisfies the condition. However, 2941 = 12 = 2^3+4 = 2^44 does not satisfy the condition. So, a(35)=4 < A045917(35). This is the first term where the two sequences differ.
