COMMENTS

Conjecture: (i) a(n) > 0 for all n > 3.
(ii) For any integer n > 3, there is a prime p < n such that the number of primes in the interval ((p1)*n, p*n) is a prime.
We have verified part (i) for n up to 150000.
See also A238277 and A238281 for related conjectures.

EXAMPLE

a(17) = 1 since the interval (9*17, 10*17] contains exactly 3 primes with 3 prime, and the interval (10*17, 11*17] contains exactly 3 primes with 3 prime.
