A228431 Number of ordered ways to write n = x + y (x, y > 0) with p(3, x) + p(6, y) prime, where p(3, k) denotes the triangular number k*(k+1)/2 and p(6, k) denotes the hexagonal number k*(2*k-1) = p(3, 2*k-1). 4

COMMENTS

Conjecture: a(n) > 0 for all n > 1.

This implies that there are infinitely many primes each of which can be written as a sum of a triangular number and a hexagonal number.

See also A228425, A228428, A228429 and A228430 for more similar conjectures.

EXAMPLE

a(14) = 1 since 14 = 10 + 4 with p(3, 10) + p(6, 4) = 83 prime.

a(38) = 1 since 38 = 31 + 7 with p(3, 31) + p (6, 7) = 587 prime.

MATHEMATICA

p[m_, x_]:=(m-2)x(x-1)/2+x
