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]
