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 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

On Feb. 24, 2009, Zhi-Wei Sun conjectured that a(n)=0 if and only if n<16 or n=18, 21, 24, 51, 84, 1011, 59586; in other words, except for 35, 41, 47, 101, 167, 2021, 119171, any odd integer greater than 30 can be written as the sum of a prime congruent to 1 mod 6, a positive power of 2 and eleven times a positive power of 2. Sun verified the conjecture for odd integers below 5*10^7, and Qing-Hu Hou continued the verification for odd integers below 1.5*10^8 (on Sun's request). Compare the conjecture with Crocker's result that there are infinitely many positive odd integers not of the form p+2^x+2^y with p an odd prime and x,y positive integers.

FORMULA

a(n)=|{<p,x,y>: p+2^x+11*2^y=2n-1 with p a prime congruent to 1 mod 6 and x,y positive integers}|

EXAMPLE

For n=19 the a(19)=2 solutions are 2*19-1=7+2^3+2*11=13+2+2*11.
