 A321857 a(n) = Pi(5,2)(n) + Pi(5,3)(n) - Pi(5,1)(n) - Pi(5,4)(n) where Pi(a,b)(x) denotes the number of primes in the arithmetic progression a*k + b less than or equal to x. 13

 OFFSET 1,3 COMMENTS a(n) is the number of primes <= n that are quadratic nonresidues modulo 5 minus the number of primes <= n that are quadratic residues modulo 5. a(n) is positive for 2 <= n <= 10000, but conjecturally infinitely many terms should be negative. What's the first n such that a(n) < 0? In general, assuming the strong form of RH, if 0 < a, b < k are integers, gcd(a, k) = gcd(b, k) = 1, a is a quadratic residue and b is a quadratic nonresidue mod n, then Pi(k,b)(n) > Pi(k,a)(n) occurs more often than not. This phenomenon is called "Chebyshev's bias". LINKS Wikipedia, Chebyshev's bias FORMULA a(n) = -Sum_{primes p<=n} Legendre(p,5) = -Sum_{primes p<=n} Kronecker(5,p) = -Sum_{primes p<=n} A080891(p). EXAMPLE Pi(5,1)(100) = Pi(5,4)(100) = 5, Pi(5,2)(100) = Pi(5,3)(100) = 7, so a(100) = 7 + 7 - 5 - 5 = 4. PROG (PARI) a(n) = -sum(i=1, n, isprime(i)*kronecker(5, i)) CROSSREFS Cf. A080891.
