COMMENTS

If we arrange the prime numbers into a triangle, with 2 at the top, 3 and 5 in the second row, 7, 11 and 13 in the third row, and so on and so forth, this sequence gives the row sums. - Alonso del Arte, Nov 08 2011

In the first 20000 terms, the only perfect square > 1 is 207936 (n=38). Is it the only one? Is there some proof/conjecture? - Carlos Eduardo Olivieri, Mar 09 2015

FORMULA

a(n) = prime(1 + n(n-1)/2) + ... + prime(n + n(n-1)/2), where prime(i) is i-th prime.

EXAMPLE

a(1)=2 because "sum of next 1 prime" is 2;

a(2)=8 because sum of next 2 primes is 3+5=8;

a(3)=31 because sum of next 3 primes is 7+11+13=31, etc.

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := Sum[Prime[i], {i, 1+n(n-1)/2, n+n(n-1)/2}]; Table[a[n], {n, 100}]

CROSSREFS

Cf. A078721 and A011756 for the starting and ending prime of each sum.
