%N Decimal expansion of sum 1/(p * log p) over the primes p=2, 3, 5, 7,...

%C sum_{p= A000040} 1/(p^s * log p) equals this value here if s=1, equals A221711 if s=2, 0.22120334039... if s=3. See arXiv:0811.4739.

%C Erdos (1935) proved that for any sequence where no term divides another, the sum of 1/(x log x) is at most some constant C. He conjectures (1989) that C can be taken to be this constant 1.636..., that is, the primes maximize this sum. - _Charles R Greathouse IV_, Mar 26 2012

%C Note that sum 1/(p * log p) is almost (a tiny bit less than) 1 + 2/Pi = 1+A060294 = 1.63661977236758... (Why is it so close?) - _Daniel Forgues_, Mar 26 2012

%C Sum 1/(p * log p) is quite close to sum 1/n^2 = Pi^2/6 = 1.644934066...

%C (Cf. David C. Ullrich, "Re: What is Sum(1/p log p)?" for why this is so, and which mentions A115563.) - _Daniel Forgues_, Aug 13 2012
