I wanted to know the General term or the function to generate this sequence I found on OEIS. It is the number of ways to express $2n+1$ as $p+2q$; where $p$ and $q$ can be odd prime number and even semiprime not necessarily distinct.

There is no formula for the general term of the sequence A046927. The conjecture that the sequence consists of positive integers remains open.

  • $\begingroup$ Then how did they generate the sequence up to 1000 terms? $\endgroup$ – Adwait Kumar Jun 4 '13 at 14:45
  • $\begingroup$ @AdwaitKumar The page to which you linked has Mathematica code for computing this sequence. $\endgroup$ – ˈjuː.zɚ79365 Jun 4 '13 at 14:58
