COMMENTS

Conjecture: This sequence is finite.

If this sequence is finite, then the Goldbach Strong Conjecture is true. If p1 and p2 are the lesser of twin primes, then q1=p1+2 and q2=p2+2 are also primes (they are the greater of twin primes). If 6n-2 = p1+p2, then 6n = q1+p2 and 6n+2 = q1+q2.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 4 because 4 = 2+2; there are no other Goldbach partitions and 2 is not the lesser of twin primes.

a(2) is not 6 because 6 = 3+3 and 3 is the lesser of twin primes.
