Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

a(10) <= 775, because we can form these two sets:

  {1, 61, 115, 151, 271, 295, 325, 361, 661, 775}

  {12, 22, 162, 196, 348, 448, 462, 502, 658, 768}.

a(11) <= 1303, because we can form these two sets:

  {4, 16, 58, 136, 178, 256, 268, 508, 586, 796, 1048}

  {1, 13, 15, 133, 175, 253, 483, 505, 925, 1035, 1303}.

EXAMPLE

For n=3 one can use the sets {1, 3, 9} and {2, 4, 10}. The sum of every pair of numbers from different sets is prime: 1+2 = 3, 1+4 = 5, 1+10 = 11, 3+2 = 5, 3+4 = 7, 3+10 = 13, 9+2 = 11, 9+4 = 13, 9+10 = 19. The largest number in these sets is 10, hence a(3) = 10.

From Bert Dobbelaere, Nov 17 2019: (Start)

a(12) = 2521. One of the two solutions with all elements <= 2521 is the pair of sets

  {1, 19, 49, 79, 175, 415, 595, 1405, 1531, 2311, 2359, 2521}

  {88, 162, 192, 382, 568, 598, 708, 1012, 1152, 2062, 2202, 2292} (End).

From Bert Dobbelaere, Nov 20 2019: (Start)

a(13) = 4641. Unique solution is the pair of sets

{1, 21, 135, 561, 735, 1045, 1801, 1825, 2445, 3355, 3661, 3705, 4641}

{172, 262, 556, 592, 862, 886, 1018, 1732, 1978, 1996, 2656, 3592, 4462} (End).
