COMMENTS

Same as A005097 ((odd primes - 1)/2) with a leading zero. - Lambert Klasen, Nov 06 2005

Ray Chandler, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000

FORMULA

Integer part of p#/((p-2)#*2#), where p=prime(n) and i# is the primorial function A034386(i). - Cino Hilliard, Feb 25 2005

n# = product of primes <= n. 0# = 1# = 2. [This is not a standard convention!] n#/(n-r)#/r# is analogous to the number of binomial coefficients A007318 = C(n, r) = n!/(n-r)!/r! where factorial ! is replaced by primorial #.

a(n) = prime_n - floor((prime_n)/2) - 1. - Giovanni Teofilatto, Nov 05 2005

a(n) = [A034386(prime(n))/(2*A034386(prime(n)-2))], n>2. - R. J. Mathar, May 18 2009

a(n) = [(prime(n)-1)/2] where the integer part [.] needs be taken only for n=1. - M. F. Hasler, Dec 13 2019

MATHEMATICA

Table[Prime[n] - Floor[Prime[n]/2] - 1, {n, 65}] (* Robert G. Wilson v *)

PROG

(PARI) c(n, r) = { local(p); forprime(p=r, n, print1(floor(primorial(p)/ primorial(p-r)/primorial(r)+.0)", ") ) } primorial(n) = \ The product primes <= n using the pari primelimit. { local(p1, x); if(n==0||n==1, return(2)); p1=1; forprime(x=2, n, p1*=x); return(p1) }

(PARI) apply( A102781(n)=(prime(n)-1)\2, [1..99]) \\ M. F. Hasler, Dec 13 2019

CROSSREFS

Cf. A005097. - R. J. Mathar, May 18 2009

Equals (A000040-1)/2, integer part (0) for the first term. - M. F. Hasler, Dec 13 2019
