COMMENTS

When n is odd, n^2 + p^2 is composite for all odd primes p, so a(n) = 2 or 0 according as n^2 + 2^2 is prime or not.

The locations of the zeros are in A263722.

The location of the first occurrence of prime(n) is A263466(n).

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..100.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 2 since 1^2 + 2^2 = 5 is prime.

a(2) = 3 since 2^2 + 2^2 = 8 is not prime but 2^2 + 3^2 = 13 is prime.

a(9) = 0 since 9^2 + 2^2 = 85 is not prime.

MATHEMATICA

f[n_] := If[OddQ[n] && ! PrimeQ[n^2 + 4], 0,

  Block[{p = 2}, While[! PrimeQ[n^2 + p^2] && p < 1500, p = NextPrime@p];

   p]]; Array[f, 100]
