Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

 OFFSET 1,4 COMMENTS Conjecture: (i) a(n) > 0 for all n > 2. (ii) If n > 30, then 2*n + 1 can be written as 2*p + q with p, q and prime(p + 2) + 2 all prime. Part (i) implies both the Goldbach conjecture and the twin prime conjecture. If all primes p with prime(p + 2) + 2 are smaller than an even number N > 2, then for any such a prime p the number N! + N - p is in the interval (N!, N! + N) and hence not prime. Similarly, part (ii) implies both Lemoine's conjecture (cf. A046927) and the twin prime conjecture. We have verified part (i) of the conjecture for n up to 2*10^8. LINKS Zhi-Wei Sun, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000 EXAMPLE a(10) = 1 since 2*10 = 3 + 17 with 3, 17 and prime(3 + 2) + 2 = 11 + 2 = 13 all prime. a(589) = 1 since 2*589 = 577 + 601 with 577, 601 and prime(577 + 2) + 2 = 4229 + 2 = 4231 all prime.
