Except for first two terms, same as A001172.
The first occurrence of k in A045917.
The graph looks like a comet.  Daniel Forgues, Jun 12 2014

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 22 as 22 = (19+3) = (17+5) = (11+11). There are exactly 3 ways 22 can be expressed as the sum of two primes and no even number less than 22 can be so expressed.
Triangle [Daniel Forgues, Jun 13 2014]:
4 = 2 + 2;
10 = 7 + 3 = 5 + 5;
22 = 19 + 3 = 17 + 5 = 11 + 11;
34 = 31 + 3 = 29 + 5 = 23 + 11 = 17 + 17;
48 = 43 + 5 = 41 + 7 = 37 + 11 = 31 + 17 = 29 + 19;
60 = 53 + 7 = 47 + 13 = 43 + 17 = 41 + 19 = 37 + 23 = 31 + 29.
