 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS This is the break-even point among the odd primes of the form 3n+1 versus primes the form 3n+2. "On the average Pi_{3,2}(x) - Pi_{3,1}(x) is asymptotically sqrt(x)/Log(x). However, Hudson (with the help of Schinzel) showed in 1985 that lim_{x --> inf} (Pi_{3,2}(x) - Pi_{3,1}(x))/ sqrt(x)/Log(x) does not exist (in particular, it is not equal to 1)." [Ribenboim, p. 275.] REFERENCES P. Ribenboim, The New Book of Prime Number Records, Springer-Verlag, NY, 1995, page 274. LINKS Donovan Johnson, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..85509 FORMULA For n>1, a(n) = A000040(A096629(n-1)). EXAMPLE There are five odd primes <= 37 of the form 3n+1. They are 7, 13, 19, 31, 37. There are five odd primes <= 37 of the form 3n+2. They are 5, 11, 17, 23, 29. Therefore 37 is a "break-even" point among the odd primes.
