COMMENTS

Central elements of odd-length rows of the triangle of primes:

.           2,

.         3,   5,

.       7,  11, 13,

.     17, 19, 23, 29,

.   31, 37, 41, 43, 47,

. 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, etc.

The sum of the reciprocals of the terms converges by comparison with sum_{n>=1} 1/n^2, since 1/a(n) < 1/(2n(n+1)+1) < 1/n^2. The limit is about 0.6471.
