 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS This is the sequence of the n-th semiprime for n = {2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19,23,29...}. Not to be confused with A106349: Primes indexed by semiprimes. We seek to know what this sequence is asymptotically, as J. B. Rosser's result, subsequently modified, is that prime(n) ~ n*(log n + log log n - 1). hence semiprime(prime(n)) ~ semiprime(n)*(log semiprime(n) + log log semiprime(n) - 1). But what is, asymptotically, semiprime(n)? Semiprime(n) ~ n log n / log log n, hence a(n) ~ n log^2 n / log log n. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Dec 28 2011 REFERENCES Rosser, J. B.

FORMULA a(n) = semiprime(prime(n)). a(n) = A001358(A000040(n)). a(n) ~ n log^2 n / log log n. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Dec 28 2011 EXAMPLE a(1) = semiprime(prime(1)) = semiprime(2) = 6. a(2) = semiprime(prime(2)) = semiprime(3) = 9.
