COMMENTS

A sequence based on the solution of the equation: 1+(1+n)*prime(n)/x-n*prime(n+1)/x=0 for x. This is an irrational rotation-like sequence: the sequence is similar to a Beatty sequence. - Roger L. Bagula, Jun 06 2002

FORMULA

a(n) = n*A000040(n+1) - (n+1)*A000040(n) = n*A001223(n) - A000040(n).

EXAMPLE

n = 10: a(10) = 10*31-11*29 = 310-319 = -9;

n = 54: a(54) = 54*257-55*251 = 13878-13805 = 73;

n = 55: a(55) = 55*263-56*257 = 14465-14392 = 73; consecutive terms are often equal to each other.
