%N Number of ordered ways to write n = p + q (q > 0) with p, 2*p^2 - 1 and 2*q^2 - 1 all prime.

%C Conjecture: a(n) > 0 for all n > 3.

%C We have verified this for n up to 2*10^7.

%H Zhi-Wei Sun, <a href="http://arxiv.org/abs/1211.1588">Conjectures involving primes and quadratic forms</a>, preprint, arXiv:1211.1588.

%e a(7) = 1 since 7 = 3 + 4 with 3, 2*3^2 - 1 = 17, 2*4^2 - 1 = 31 all prime.

%e a(40) = 1 since 40 = 2 + 38, and 2, 2*2^2 - 1 = 7 , 2*38^2 - 1 = 2887 are all prime.

%e a(68) = 1 since 68 = 43 + 25, and all the three numbers 43, 2*43^2 - 1 = 3697 and 2*25^2 - 1 = 1249 are prime.
