COMMENTS

"A pair of sexy primes" is defined as two primes p_a < p_b such that p_b = p_a + 6, with p_a from A023201. See the Weisstein link.

The restriction is therefore p_a < p2 - p1 < p_a + 6 for p_a from A023201.

Conjecture: when n>=7, a(n)>0.

The products of sexy prime pairs are listed in A111192.

EXAMPLE

n=7, 2n=14=3+11. 11-3=8, 5<8<11 where {5, 11} is a pair of sexy primes. So a(7)=1.

n=8, 2n=16=3+13=5+11. 13-3=10, 5<10<11; 11-5=6, 5<6<11, where {5, 11} is a pair of sexy primes: two cases found, so a(8)=2.

n=17, 2n=34=3+31=5+29=11+23. 31-3=28, 23<28<29; 29-5=24, 23<24<29; 23-11=12, 7<12<13; where {23,29} and {7,13} are sexy prime pairs: three cases found, so a(17)=3.
