Li(x) = Li(2) + integral 1/log(t) dt from 2 to x > 2.

Contribution from Mats Granvik, Jun 14 2013: (Start) The logarithmic integral li(x) = exponential integral Ei(Log(x)).

The generating function for tau A000005, the number of divisors of n is: Sum_{n >= 1} a(n) x^n = Sum_{k > 0} x^k/(1 - x^k). Another way to write the generating function for tau A000005 is Sum_{n=1..Infinity} A000005(n) x^n = Sum_{a=1..Infinity} Sum_{b=1..Infinity} x^(a*b).

If we instead think of the integral with the same form, evaluate at x = Exp(1) = 2.7182818284... = A001113 and set the integration limits to zero and Sqrt(Log(n)), we get for n >= 0:

Logarithmic integral Li(n) = Integrate_{a = 0..Sqrt(Log(n))} Integrate_{b=0..Sqrt(Log(n))} Exp(1)^(a*b) + EulerGamma + Log(Log(n)). (End)

Li(2)-1 is the minimum [known to date, for n>1] of |Li(n) - PrimePi(n)|. [Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Jul 10 2013]
