FORMULA

Conjecture: for n>=5, a(n) equals the smallest integer of the form (A000040(s+1)+...+A000040(s+n^2))/n = (A007504(s+n^2)-A007504(s))/n of the same oddness as n.

a(2) = 0, otherwise a(n) = (1/n) * sum(m=k..n^2+k-1, A000040(m)), where k = A049084(A104157(n)). - Arkadiusz Wesolowski, Nov 06 2015
