(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A102049 Indices of primes which are denominators of convergents to e. 2
2, 4, 20, 2073, 688812, 23493068282804, 51287550456151700 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



The prime denominators of convergents to e form A094008 (so A000040(a(n)) = A094008(n)). Their positions in A007677 (denominators of convergents to e) form A094007, so a(n) = A000720(A007677(A094007(n))).

a(n) = A000720(A094008(n)).


a(1) = 2 because the first convergent to e with prime denominator is 8/3 and the index of 3 is 2, i.e., 3 is the 2nd prime.
