Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

a(p+1) = 3 if p is a prime. a(n) = 4 if n is the sum of two primes. For all even numbers > 4, a(n) = 4 by Goldbach's conjecture.

EXAMPLE

a(8) = 3, the partitions are (1,7), (2,6), (3,5), (4,4) which give 3, 6, 4 and 6 as the sum of the number of divisors of both parts.

PROG
