COMMENTS

a(n) is a perfect square (A000290) if and only if a(n) = a(n+1) [i.e., when n+1 is composite], and is a pronic number (A002378) when a(n) < a(n+1) [when n+1 is prime].

FORMULA

a(n) = pi(n) * pi(n+1) = A000720(n) * A000720(n+1).

EXAMPLE

a(5) = 9; pi(5) * pi(6) = 3 * 3 = 9.

a(6) = 12; pi(6) * pi(7) = 3 * 4 = 12.

MAPLE
