COMMENTS

Conjecture: (i) a(n) > 0 except for n = 1, 3, 6. Also, a(n) = 1 only for n = 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 12, 14, 35.
(ii) For each integer n > 7, there is a positive integer k < n/2 with (prime(nk)  prime(k))/2 prime. Also, for any positive integer n not among 1, 3, 5, 9, 21, (prime(k) + prime(nk))/2 is prime for some 0 < k < n.
(iii) For any integer n > 6, prime(k)^2 + prime(nk)^2  1 is prime for some 0 < k < n. Also, for any integer n > 4 not equal to 14, (prime(k)^2 + prime(nk)^2)/2 is prime for some 0 < k < n.
(iv) For any integer n > 3, (prime(k)  1)^2 + prime(nk)^2 is prime for some 0 < k < n. Also, if n > 4 then (prime(k) + 1)^2 + prime(nk)^2 is prime for some 0 < k < n.

EXAMPLE

a(8) = 1 since prime(4) + prime(4)  1 = 13 is prime.
a(10) = 1 since prime(4) + prime(6)  1 = 7 + 13  1 = 19 is prime.
a(14) = 1 since prime(6) + prime(8)  1 = 13 + 19  1 = 31 is prime.
a(35) = 1 since prime(2) + prime(33)  1 = 3 + 137  1 = 139 is prime.
