COMMENTS

Conjecture: a(n)>0 for all n>1. - Entries checked by Franklin T. Adams-Watters, May 05 2006

The graph of this sequence inspires the following conjecture: A > a(n)/pi(n) > B, where A and B are constants and pi(n) is the prime counting function (A000720). - T. D. Noe, Feb 26 2007

Stronger conjecture: Let pi(n) be the prime counting function (A000720). Then pi(n) >= a(n) >= pi(n)/5 for n>1, with the following equalities: pi(2)=a(2), pi(10)=a(10) and a(12)=pi(12)/5. - T. D. Noe, Feb 26 2007

Records in a(n) are for n = 1, 2, 5, 8, 10, 20, 25, 35, 40, 49, 59, 65, 80, 115, 125, 130, 158, 200, 250, 265, 310, ... - Thomas Ordowski, Mar 05 2017

Number of primes p = (x^2 + y^2)/2 with 0 < x < y such that x + y = 2n. - Thomas Ordowski, Mar 06 2017

FORMULA

a(n) = O(n/log(n)). a(n) <= phi(n), a(n) = phi(n) for n = 2, 6, and 10. a(n) <= phi(2n)/2, a(n) = phi(2n)/2 for n = 2, 3, 5, 6, and 10. - Thomas Ordowski, Mar 01 2017

EXAMPLE

a(5)=2 because there are 2 values of s (2 and 4) such that 5^2 + s^2 is a prime number.
