COMMENTS
Conjecture: Each term of the sequence is a positive square.
See also A321597 and A321610 for similar conjectures.
This conjecture fails for n = 12. The values of a(12),...,a(20) were first computed by the user MTson on Mathoverflow. Ilya Bogdanov has confirmed that a(n) is indeed a square. See answers and comments to Question 315351 on Mathoverflow. - Zhi-Wei Sun, Nov 17 2018

EXAMPLE
a(3) = 1, and (1,3,2) is a permutation of {1,...,n} with 1^4 + 1^4 = 2, 2^4 + 3^4 = 97 and 3^4 + 2^4 = 97 all prime.
