COMMENTS

Goldbach conjectured that every integer >5 is the sum of three primes. 6=2+2+2, 7=2+2+3, 8=2+3+3, 9=3+3+3=2+2+5,......
The largest possible value of a(n) is PrimePi(n)1, which is frequently attained.  T. D. Noe, May 05 2008

FORMULA

If n is of the form 2*(prime + 1) then a(n) is an even number.


EXAMPLE

n=9: 9 = 3+3+3 = 2+2+5, we can see 3 different primes. so a(9) = 3.


MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := Select[ Reverse /@ IntegerPartitions[n, {3}] , LessEqual @@ # && PrimeQ[#[[1]]] && PrimeQ[#[[2]]] && PrimeQ[#[[3]]] &] // Flatten // Union // Length; Table[a[n], {n, 1, 85}] (* JeanFrançois Alcover, Oct 03 2012 *)
