COMMENTS

Without any restriction, trivially, a(n)=0 and, if to consider a(n) positive, then, again trivially, a(n)=1. Without the restriction k >= 5n, we have a(n)=4*n+1; on the other hand, if to require a(n)>=5*n and in addition a(n+1)>a(n), then we obtain sequence 5,12,16,20 and, beginning with n=5, we have progression 64+12*(n-5).
