COMMENTS

Conjecture: a(n) > 0 for all n > 1.
This implies that there are infinitely many primes each of which is a sum of a power of 2 and a triangular number.
See also A231201, A231555 and A231561 for other similar conjectures.

EXAMPLE

a(23) = 1 since 23 = 9 + 14 with 2^9 + 14*15/2 = 617 prime.
a(64) = 1 since 64 = 14 + 50 with 2^{14} + 50*51/2 = 17659 prime.
