This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing. Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS The left point (x,y) of intersection of quadratic fits of log(a(n)) and log(A191304(n+1)) is about (-1, 0). a(n+1) < 2 a(n) for all n, and lim_{n->inf} a(n+1)/a(n) = 2. With A167168(1)=3 and s_1 = {3,5,11,23,...}, p_(a(n)) = s_1(n+1) in a two-index notation for every prime p_i for i > 1 based on Shevelev's equivalence classes of Rowland-like prime sequence recurrences. These equivalence classes {s_n(k)} were defined by Shevelev, see Crossrefs. LINKS FORMULA a(n) = pi(A191304(n+1)). (4/5)^2 (n - 1) < log(a(n)) < (4/5)^2 (n + 1), for at least n < 46. EXAMPLE p_(a(3)) = A000040(a(3)) = A000040(9) = 23 = s_1(3+1) with s_1 = {3,5,11,23,...}.
