COMMENTS

Before this sequence, a(24) = 8795 was an uninteresting number, see References and Links. For example: 8795 was mentioned in Sloane's Gap paper, pages 4-5: Which numbers do not appear in Sloane's encyclopedia? At the time of an initial calculation conducted in August 2008 by Philippe Guglielmetti, the smallest absent number tracked down was 8795.

FORMULA

a(n) = A000040(n)*A000040(n+2) - 2*A000040(n+1) = A090076(n) - A100484(n+1).

a(n) ~ n^2 log^2 n. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Sep 14 2015

EXAMPLE

For n = 2, prime(2) = 3, prime(2+1) = 5 and prime(2+2) = 7, so a(2) = 3*7 - 2*5 = 21 - 10 = 11.

For n = 24, prime(24) = 89, prime(24+1) = 97 and prime(24+2) = 101, so a(24) = 89*101 - 2*97 = 8989 - 194 = 8795.
