COMMENTS

Conjecture: a(n) > 0 for every n = 330, 331, ....

We have verified this for n up to 80000.

The conjecture implies that there are infinitely many prime triples of the form {prime(p), prime(p) + 2, prime(p) + 6} with p prime. See A236464 for such primes p.

EXAMPLE

a(10) = 1 since prime(2) + phi(8) = 3 + 4 = 7, prime(7) + 2 = 17 + 2 = 19 and prime(7) + 6 = 23 are all prime.

a(877) = 1 since prime(784) + phi(877-784) = 6007 + 60 = 6067, prime(6067) + 2 = 60101 + 2 = 60103 and prime(6067) + 6 = 60107 are all prime.
