FORMULA

Primeindexed primes (PIPS) are generated by prime(prime(x)) x=1, 2, ...


EXAMPLE

For n = 3, the polynomial p(x) = (2/3)x^3 + 6x^2  (34/3)x + 9 satisfies p(1) = 3, p(2) = 5, p(3) = 11 and p(4) = 17, so a(3) = 9.


PROG

(PARI) for (i = 2, 50, x = vector(i); y = x; for (j = 1, i, y[j] = prime(prime(j)); x[j] = j); q = polinterpolate(x, y, 0); print(q))
