COMMENTS

Group the primes such that the sum of each group is a prime. Each group from the second onwards should contain at least 3 primes: (2, 3), (5, 7, 11), (13, 17, 19, 23, 29), (31, 37, 41), (43, 47, 53, 59, 61), ... Sequence gives number of terms in each group.

EXAMPLE

a(1)=2 because sum of first two primes 2+3 is prime; a(2)=3 because sum of next three primes 5+7+11 is prime; a(3)=5 because sum of next five primes 13+17+19+23+29 is prime.

MATHEMATICA

f[l_List] := Block[{n = Length[Flatten[l]], k = 3, r}, While[r = Table[Prime[i], {i, n + 1, n + k}]; ! PrimeQ[Plus @@r], k += 2]; Append[l, r]]; Length /@ Nest[f, {{2, 3}}, 100] (* Ray Chandler, May 11 2007 *)

cnt = 0; Table[s = Prime[cnt+1] + Prime[cnt+2]; len = 2; While[! PrimeQ[s], len++; s = s + Prime[cnt+len]]; cnt = cnt + len; len, {n, 100}] (* T. D. Noe, Feb 06 2012 *)

Cf. A073682(n) is the sum of terms in n-th group, A073683(n) is the first term in n-th group, A077279(n) is the last term in n-th group.
