COMMENTS

Legendre's constant is 1.08366 (A228211). - Alonso del Arte, Nov 02 2013

This sequence has historical rather than mathematical interest, cf. A228211. It is better to use 1 + 1/log(10^n) instead of A. Since A is given to only 5 decimal places, it does not make much sense to compute terms of this sequence beyond n ~ 10. For n = 9, the error a(9)/A006880(9) is about 0.14%, while the error for 1 + 1/log(10^9) instead of A is only about 0.04%. - M. F. Hasler, Dec 03 2018
