Table of n, a(n) for n=1..50.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = -1 because there are an infinite number of nonprimes.

a(3) = 17 because 17 = Max[{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 13, 17}] = Max[A124868(n)], where A124868(n) are the natural numbers that are not the sum of 3 distinct primes.

PROG

(PARI) print1("-1, -1, "); for(n=3, 50, L=0; for(i=1, n, L+=prime(i)); L*=2; a=matrix(n, L, i, j, 0); forprime(p=2, L, forstep(i=n, 2, -1, for(j=p+1, L, if(a[i-1, j-p], a[i, j]=1))); a[1, p]=1); r=L; while(a[n, r], r--); print1(r", "))
