COMMENTS

Also number of primes between prime(n) and n.  Joseph L. Pe, Sep 24 2002
Plot the points (n,a(n)) by, say, appending the line ListPlot[%, PlotJoined > True] to the Mathematica program. The result is virtually a straight line passing through the origin. For the first thousand points, the slope is approximately = 3/4. (This behavior can be explained by using the prime number theorem.)  Joseph L. Pe, Sep 24 2002

FORMULA

a(n)=nA000720(n)1=A062298(n)1.


EXAMPLE

Prime(8) = 19 and there are 3 primes between 8 and 19 (endpoints are excluded), namely 11, 13, 17. Hence a(8) = 3.


MATHEMATICA

(*gives number of primes < n*) f[n_] := Module[{r, i}, r = 0; i = 1; While[Prime[i] < n, i++ ]; i  1]; (*gives number of primes between m and n with endpoints excluded*) g[m_, n_] := Module[{r}, r = f[m]  f[n]; If[PrimeQ[n], r = r  1]; r]; Table[g[Prime[n], n], {n, 1, 1000}]
