COMMENTS

Replace each factor n = 1, 2, 3, ... with prime(n) = 2, 3, 5, ... in Ramanujan's infinite nested radical 1*sqrt(1 + 2*sqrt(1 + 3*sqrt(1 + ...))) = 3, obtaining 2*sqrt(1 + 3*sqrt(1 + 5*sqrt(1 + ...))) = 9.405043....

Converges by Vijayaraghavan's test or Herschfeld's test, together with the Prime Number Theorem. - Petros Hadjicostas and Jonathan Sondow, Mar 23 2014

FORMULA

Equals 2*sqrt(1 + 3*sqrt(1 + 5*sqrt(1 + 7*sqrt(1 + 11*sqrt(1 + ...))))).

Lim_{n->infinity} 2*sqrt(1 + 3*sqrt(1 + 5*sqrt(1 + ... + prime(n)*sqrt(1))))).

sqrt(4 + sqrt(144 + sqrt(129600 + ...))) = sqrt(A(1) + sqrt(A(2) + sqrt(A(3) + ...))), where A = A239350 = superprimorials squared.
