COMMENTS

In 1932, Robert Hermann Breusch proved that for n >= 48, there is at least one prime p between n and (9/8)n, exclusive (A327802).
The terms of A285586 correspond to numbers k such that there is no prime p between k and (9/8)n, inclusive.

FORMULA

A327802(a(n)) = 0.


EXAMPLE

Between 16 and (9/8) * 16 = 18, exclusive, there is the prime 17, hence 16 is not a term.
Between 47 and (9/8) * 47 = 52.875, exclusive, 48, 49, 50, 51 and 52 are all composite numbers, hence 47 is a term.
