Annual Appeal: Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. In 2018 we replaced the server with a faster one, added 20000 new sequences, and reached 7000 citations (often saying "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

COMMENTS

Conjecture: this sequence is finite. - Carlos Rivera

Rivera's conjecture that this sequence is finite conflicts with heuristics; the next entry is almost certainly 6205, since floor((Pi-3)*10^6205) is (very) probably prime, though its proof may take decades. - David Broadhurst, Nov 08 2000

Floor((Pi-3)*10^6205) is a strong pseudoprime to all (1229) prime bases a < 10000 (the test took 45 minutes). - Joerg Arndt, Jan 16 2011

Terms for n>=5 are only probable primes. - Dmitry Kamenetsky, Aug 03 2015

Floor((Pi-3)*10^16350) is a probable prime, checked with 25 iterations of the Miller-Rabin test. - Dmitry Kamenetsky, Aug 05 2015

The next term is greater than 65400. - Dmitry Kamenetsky, Aug 09 2015
