COMMENTS

Conjecture: a(n) > 0 for all n > 2. Also, for each n > 3 there is a prime p < n with 2*P(np)  1 prime.
We have verified the conjecture for n up to 10^5.
See also A238459 for a similar conjecture involving the strict partition function.

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 1 since 2 and 2*P(32) + 1 = 2*1 + 1 = 3 are both prime.
a(41) = 1 since 37 and 2*P(4137) + 1 = 2*5 + 1 = 11 are both prime.
