COMMENTS

Conjecture: The number 4 is the only perfect power in this sequence. In other words, it is impossible to have a(n) = x^m for some integers n > 3, m > 1 and x > 1.  ZhiWei Sun, Sep 30 2015

FORMULA

a(n) = A060967(2n).  R. J. Mathar, Sep 15 2012


EXAMPLE

pi(2^3)=4 since first 4 primes are 2,3,5,7 all <=2^3=8.
