COMMENTS

The rational partial products are r(n)=a(n)/A191999(n), n>=1.
The limit r(n), n>infinity, approximately 1.3728134 is the constant C(f)appearing in the HardyLittlewood conjecture (also called BatemanHorn conjecture) for the integer polynomial f=x^2+1. See the Conrad reference Example 2, p. 134, also for the original references.
Note that the nontrivial Dirichlet character modulo 4, called Chi_2(4;n)=A056594(n1), n>=1, appears as Chi_4(n) in this reference. The constant .6864067 given there is C(f)/2 (the degree of the function f has been divided).

FORMULA

a(n) = numerator(r(n)) with
r(n):=product(1Chi_2(4;p(j))/(p(j)1),j=1..n), n>=1, with the primes p(j)=A000040(j) and the nontrivial Dirichlet Character modulo 4, called here Chi_2(4;k) = A056594(k).


EXAMPLE

The rationals r(n) are: 1, 3/2, 9/8, 21/16, 231/160, 847/640, 2541/2048, ...
