COMMENTS

Also number of primes between prime(n) and n. - Joseph L. Pe, Sep 24 2002

Plot the points (n,a(n)) by, say, appending the line ListPlot[%, PlotJoined -> True] to the Mathematica program. The result is virtually a straight line passing through the origin. For the first thousand points, the slope is approximately = 3/4. (This behavior can be explained by using the prime number theorem.) - Joseph L. Pe, Sep 24 2002

Partial sums of A066247, the characteristic function of composites. - ~~~

FORMULA

a(n)=n-A000720(n)-1=A062298(n)-1.

EXAMPLE

Prime(8) = 19 and there are 3 primes between 8 and 19 (endpoints are excluded), namely 11, 13, 17. Hence a(8) = 3.

MATHEMATICA

(*gives number of primes < n*) f[n_] := Module[{r, i}, r = 0; i = 1; While[Prime[i] < n, i++ ]; i - 1]; (*gives number of primes between m and n with endpoints excluded*) g[m_, n_] := Module[{r}, r = f[m] - f[n]; If[PrimeQ[n], r = r - 1]; r]; Table[g[Prime[n], n], {n, 1, 1000}]

(Haskell)

a065855 n = a065855_list !! (n-1)

a065855_list = scanl1 (+) (map a066247 [1..])
