%N Least number m such that 2m can be expressed as the sum of two distinct primes in exactly n ways.

%C Let f(x) = A061357(x) be the number of primes p < x such that 2x-p is also prime. a(n) is the smallest positive integer x such that f(x) = n.

%C Or, least number m such that m can be expressed as the mean of two distinct primes in exactly n ways. Cf. A061357 = number of ways n can be expressed as the mean of two distinct primes, A061357 = number of ways the even integer 2n can be written as the sum of two primes for all even integers >6. - _Zak Seidov_, Sep 08 2006

%C For what values of n is a(n) > a(n+1)?

%F It seems that for n>7 n*log(n)*log(log(n)) < a(n) < 3n*log(n)*log(log(n)). Does lim n->infinity a(n)/n/log(n)/log(log(n)) exist ? - _Benoit Cloitre_, Aug 11 2002

%e a(1)=4 because 8 = 3+5 that is 8 can be expressed as the sum of two distinct primes by exactly 1 way,

%e a(2)=8 because 16 = 3+13 = 5+11 (2 ways),

%e a(3)=12 because 24 = 5+17 = 7+17 = 11+17 (3 ways),

%e a(4)=18 because 36 = 5+31 = 7+29 = 13+23 = 17+19 (4 ways), etc.

%e Starting with third term 12, all terms are multiples of 3.
