COMMENTS

The sum is similar to that in A061015 with an additional 1. The sum in the definition has limit about 1.45224742. The case of reciprocal cubes is in A075987.

For n>0 a(n) is the determinant of the n X n matrix with elements M[i,j] = 1+Prime[i]^2 if i=j and 1 otherwise. - Alexander Adamchuk, Jul 08 2006

FORMULA

a(0)=1; a(n)=a(n-1)*p(n)^2+(p(1)*...*p(n-1))^2.

a(n) = Det[DiagonalMatrix[Table[Prime[i]^2,{i,1,n}]]+1] for n>0. - Alexander Adamchuk, Jul 08 2006

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 49 so a(3) = 49*p(3)^2 + (2*3)^2 = 49*25 + 36 = 1261.
