Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Number of primes whose binary order (A029837) is n+1, i.e., those with ceiling(log_2(p)) = n+1. [corrected by Jon E. Schoenfield, May 13 2018]

First differences of A007053. This sequence illustrates how far the Bertrand postulate is oversatisfied.

Scaled for Ramanujan primes as in A190501, A190502.

This sequence appears complete such that any nonnegative number can be written as a sum of distinct terms of this sequence. The sequence has been checked for completeness up to the gap between 2^46 and 2^47. Assuming that after 2^46 the formula x/log(x) is a good approximation to primepi(x), it can be proved that 2*a(n) > a(n+1) for all n >= 46, which is a sufficient condition for completeness.

FORMULA

a(n) = primepi(2^(n+1)) - primepi(2^n).

a(n) = A095005(n)+A095006(n) = A095007(n) + A095008(n) = A095013(n) + A095014(n) = A095015(n) + A095016(n) (for n > 1) = A095021(n) + A095022(n) + A095023(n) + A095024(n) = A095019(n) + A095054(n) = A095020(n) + A095055(n) = A095060(n) + A095061(n) = A095063(n) + A095064(n) = A095094(n) + A095095(n).

EXAMPLE

The 7 primes for which A029837(p)=6 are 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61.
