 OFFSET 1,5 COMMENTS In Cramer's probabilistic model of primes with n urns (Cramer, 1936, A235402), there exists a distribution of maximal "prime gaps". We can represent this distribution as a histogram. This sequence is the distribution's median, i.e. the (unique) x-coordinate of the histogram's bar with the following properties: - the sum of this bar plus all bars to the left is 1/2 or more, AND - the sum of this bar plus all bars to the right is 1/2 or more. See A235402 for further comments. LINKS H. Cramer, On the order of magnitude of the difference between consecutive prime numbers, Acta Arith. 2 (1936), 23-46. A. Kourbatov, The distribution of maximal prime gaps in Cramer's probabilistic model of primes, arXiv:1401.6959. A. Kourbatov, Upper bounds for prime gaps related to Firoozbakht's conjecture, J. Int. Seq. 18 (2015) 15.11.2 FORMULA a(n) = n log(li n)/(li n) + O(n/li n), where li n is the logarithmic integral of n. EXAMPLE For n=3, the histogram bar at x=1 has the height 0.91>1/2. Therefore, x=1 is the histogram's median, so a(3)=1. See A235402 for more details. CROSSREFS Cf. A235402 (mode of maximal "prime gaps" in Cramer's model).
