COMMENTS

Conjecture: (i) a(n) > 0 for all n > 4, and a(n) = 1 only for n = 5, 12, 26, 27, 32, 68.

(ii) For any integer n > 5, there is a prime p <= n with pi(n+p) prime.

(iii) If n > 32, then pi((n-p)^2) is prime for some prime p < n. Also, for each n > 6 there is an odd prime p < 2*n with pi((n - (p-1)/2)^2) prime.

(iv) Any integer n > 11 can be written as p + q with p and pi(q^2 + q + 1) both prime.

(v) Each integer n > 34 can be written as k + m with k and m positive integers such that pi(k^2) and pi(2*m^2) are both prime.

EXAMPLE

a(5) = 1 since 2 and pi(5-2) = pi(3) = 2 are both prime.

a(12) = 1 since 7 and pi(12-7) = pi(5) = 3 are both prime.

a(15) = 2 since 3 and pi(15-3) = pi(12) = 5 are both prime, and 11 and pi(15-11) = pi(4) = 2 are both prime.

a(26) = 1 since 23 and pi(26-23) = 2 are both prime.

a(27) = 1 since 23 and pi(27-23) = 2 are both prime.

a(32) = 1 since 29 and pi(32-29) = 2 are both prime.

a(68) = 1 since 37 and pi(68-37) = pi(31) = 11 are both prime.
