COMMENTS

From Tilman Neumann, Oct 05 2008: (Start)

a(n) is also given by

- substituting the primes (A000040) into (the simplest) Faa di Bruno's formula, or

- the complete Bell polynomial of the first n prime arguments, or

- computing n-th moments from the first n primes as cumulants

The examples show that the coefficients of the prime power products are just A036040/A080575 (these are just rearrangements of the same coefficients). Moreover, the prime products of the additional terms span the whole space of natural numbers, thus what we see here is a reordering of the natural numbers! (End)

EXAMPLE

From Tilman Neumann, Oct 05 2008: (Start)

Let p_i denote the i-th prime A000040(i). Then

a(1)=2 = 1*p_1

a(2)=7 = 1*p_2 + 1*p_1^2

a(3)=31 = 1*p_3 + 3*p_2*p_1 + 1*p_1^3

a(4)=162= 1*p_4 + 4*p_3*p_1 + 3*p_2^2 + 6*p_2*p_1^2 + 1*p_1^4

a(5)=973= 1*p_5 + 5*p_4*p_1 + 10*p_3*p_2 + 10*p_3*p_1^2 + 15*p_2^2*p_1 + 10*p_2*p_1^3 + 1*p_1^5
