COMMENTS

From the Goldbach conjecture.
A107926 = 2*A103147 by definition.
a(3n)> a(3n2), a(3n1), a(3n+1) & a(3n+2) for all n > 0 except for n = 1, 2, 12, 19, 20 or 41.
Of those values found so far a(3n+2) > a(3n+1) by ~8%.  Robert G. Wilson v, Nov 03 2013
Except for 1, all indices, i, not congruent to 0 (mod 3), a(i) is congruent to 0 (mod 6) and for all indices, i, congruent to 0 (mod 3), a(i) is not congruent to 0 (mod 6). Of those not congruent to 0 (mod 6), those congruent to 2 outnumber those congruent to 4, about 8 to 7. Robert G. Wilson v, Nov 03 2013

EXAMPLE

a(0) = 4 because 4=2+2 and 22=0.
a(1) = 8 because 8 is the least number with 8=p+q and pq=2 for primes p and q.
a(2) = 18 because 18=7+11 and the primes 7 and 11 have difference 4.
