A059305 Pi(Mersenne(n)): index of n-th Mersenne prime. 17

1,1

COMMENTS

Similar to A016027, but gives the number of the n-th Mersenne prime (rather than the number of the prime exponent).

A subsequence of A007053 and A086690.

FORMULA

a(n) = A000720(A000668(n))

a(n) = A007053(A000043(n))

A000668(n) = A000040(a(n)). - Omar E. Pol, Jun 29 2012

EXAMPLE

Element 2 = 4 because Mersenne2 = (2^3)-1 = 7; 7 is the 4th prime.
