Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

Coefficient in formulas for the distribution of integers with a fixed number of prime factors.

Reciprocal of the twin prime constant A005597. See A005597 for links and additional references and comments.

Numerators of partial products are A062271. Denominators are A062270.

An analog for primes of Wallis' product pi/2 = Product_{n >=1} (2n)^2/(2n-1)(2n+1), because A167864 = Product_{prime p>2} (p-1)^2/(p-2)p.

FORMULA

Equals 1/A005597.

Equals Product_{prime p>2} (p-1)^2/(p-2)p = (2^2/1*3)(4^2/3*5)(6^2/5*7)(10^2/9*11) ....

EXAMPLE

Product_{prime p > 2} (1 + 1/(p(p-2))) = 1.51477...
