Table of n, a(n) for n=1..7.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 2;

a(2) = 23 = 5 + 7 + 11;

a(3) = 83 = 23 + 29 + 31 = 11 + 13 + 17 + 19 + 23;

a(4) = 311 = 101 + 103 + 107 = 53 + 59 + 61 + 67 + 71 = 31 + 37 + 41 + 43 + 47 + 53 + 59.

MATHEMATICA

pr = Prime[Range[1000]]; tu[n_]:=(Total /@ Partition[pr, n, 1])

Intersection[tu[3], tu[5], tu[7]][[1]] (* gives a(3) = 311 - Zak Seidov, Feb 27 2013*)

a[n_] := If[n == 1, 2, Block[{t, w}, t = Table[{Total@(w = Prime@ Range@(2*i + 1)), w}, {i, n - 1}]; While[Length@Union[First /@ t] > 1 || ! PrimeQ@t[[1, 1]], t = Sort@t; w = NextPrime@t[[1, 2, -1]]; t[[1, 1]] += w - t[[1, 2, 1]]; t[[1, 2]] = Append[Rest@t[[1, 2]], w]]; t[[1, 1]]]]; Array[a, 4] (* Giovanni Resta, Feb 27 2013 *)
