 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS Primes on the left side of the triangle formed by listing successively the prime numbers in a triangular grid:               2             3   5           7  11  13        17  19  23  29      31  37  41  43  47    53  59  61  67  71  73 The sum of the reciprocals appears to converge. As the terms grow faster than the triangular numbers and the sum of inverse numbers converges, the sum of inverses indeed converges. - Joerg Arndt, Oct 28 2015 LINKS Michael De Vlieger, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..10000 FORMULA a(n) = A000040(A000124(n)). - Altug Alkan, Oct 28 2015 MATHEMATICA Table[Prime[n (n + 1)/2 + 1], {n, 0, 46}] (* Michael De Vlieger, Oct 28 2015 *) Prime[#]&/@(Accumulate[Range[0, 50]]+1) (* Harvey P.
