(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A332704 Record indices of the ratio A280008(n) / A002375(n) (Goldbach conjecture related). 1
3, 5, 33, 63, 165, 315, 255255 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



The sequence lists indices n for which A280008(n) / A002375(n) is less than all previous indices n > 2.

We do not consider indices n=1 and n=2, for which the sequence A002375(n) (= number of odd primes {p,q} such that 2n=p+q) is zero.

If the Goldbach Conjecture is false, then this sequence A332704 is finite. It will end with n such that A280008(n) / A002375(n) = -1 since no further terms could achieve less than this value.

If the Goldbach Conjecture is true, then this sequence A332704 may be finite or infinite. The ratio A280008(n) / A002375(n) has a lower bound greater than -1 and the value of this ratio for record indices approaches the lower bound.

It is known that this sequence has additional terms beyond a(7) = 17#/2 = 255255 =  A070826(7) since A280008(255255) / A002375(255255) = -0.76119 and for A070826(10) = 20#/2 = 3234846615 we have A280008(3234846615) / A002375(3234846615) = -0.78989.
