COMMENTS

3 <= a(7) <= 7.

The constant c in the asymptotic function of the number of practical numbers up to x, P(x) = c*x/log(x) * (1 + O(log(log(x))/log(x))).

Margenstern evaluated it as 1.341.

Weingartner proved that 1.311 < c < 1.693 (2017), and 1.33607322 < c < 1.33607654 (2019).

FORMULA

Equals 1/(1 - exp(-gamma)) * Sum_{k practical} (1/k) * (Sum_{p prime, p<=sigma(k)+1} log(p)/(p-1) - log(k)) * Product_{p prime, p<=sigma(k)+1} (1-1/p), where gamma is Euler's constant (A001620) and sigma is the divisors sum function (A000203).
