COMMENTS

a(p) = 2 if p2 is a prime else a(p) = 0. If n = 2p, p is a prime then a(n) is odd else a(n) is even. As p is counted only once and if q and nq both are prime then the count is increased by 2. ( Analogous to the fact that perfect squares have odd number of divisors).
a(2k+1) = 2 if (2k1) is prime, else a(2k+1)=0 (for any k). This sequence can be used to redescribe a couple of conjectures: the Goldbach conjecture == a(2n) > 0 for all n>=2; twin primes conjecture == for any n, there is a prime p>n s.t. a(p)>0.
Number of ordered ways of writing n as the sum of two primes.

FORMULA

G.f.: (Sum_{k>0} x^prime(k))^2.  Vladeta Jovovic, Mar 12 2005
Convolution of "a(n)=1 if n prime, 0 otherwise" (A010051) with itself.  Graeme McRae, Jul 18 2006


EXAMPLE

a(16) = 4 as there are 4 primes 3,5,11 and 13 such that 163,165,1611and 1613 are primes.


MAPLE
