See A331940 for more information on the Hardy-Littlewood constant. The polynomials described by this sequence are increasingly avoiding primes.

The following table provides the minimum values of the Hardy-Littlewood constant C, together with the number of primes np generated by the polynomial P(x) = x^2 + a(n)*x + 1 for 1 <= x <= r = 10^8 and the actual ratio np*(P(r)/r)/Integral_{x=2..P(r)} 1/log(x) dx.
