Harry J. Smith, Table of n, a(n) for n=1,...,1000

FORMULA

a(n) = n - A007917(n).

a(n) = 0 iff n is 1 or a prime.

Computable also as a "commutator": PrimePi[Prime[m]]-Prime[PrimePi[m]]= A000720[A000040(m)]-A000040[A000720(m)]. Labels position of composites between 2 consecutive primes. - Labos Elemer, Oct 19 2001

a(n) = a(n-1)*0^A010051(n) + 1 - A010051(n), a(1) = 0. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Mar 23 2006

a(n) = n mod A007917(n). - Michel Marcus, Aug 22 2014

EXAMPLE

a(26) = 26 - 23 = 3, a(37) = 37 - 37 = 0.
