Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

An entropy power of white noise function with N=1/log(n).

Function is based on asymptotic form of distribution: PrimePi[n]--> n/log(n) Function misses the first three primes {2,3,5}, but is pretty good after that.

It is easy to see due to the slow growth of the function that the sequence is precisely the primes greater than 5. [Charles R Greathouse IV, Aug 21 2011]
