COMMENTS

The subsequence of primes begins: 3, 100109. As a final application of Minkowski's theorem, Stevenhagen shows that the unit group of an order R in a number field with r real and 2s complex embeddings is finitely generated of free rank r + s - 1 (Dirichlet unit theorem).

FORMULA

a(n) = floor((n^n)*Pi/(4*n!)) = floor((Pi/4)*A000312(n)/A000142(n)).

EXAMPLE

a(0) = floor((1^1)*Pi/(4*1!)) = floor(0.78539816339744830962) = 0.

a(10) = floor((10^10)*Pi/(4*10!)) = floor(2164.3467906675714) = 2164.

MAPLE
