(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A094106 a(n) is the maximal length L of a "power floor prime" sequence, i.e., a sequence of the form floor(x^k), k = 1, 2, ..., L such that floor(x) = prime(n). 0

EXAMPLE
a(1)=8 because for x=111/47 the sequence [x^k], k=1,2,... 2,5,13,31,73,173,409,967,... starts with 8 primes and this is the maximum for any x with [x]=2. (Compare also A063636, though the rational number x = 1287/545 used there is not of minimal height!)

a(25) and a(26) from Michael Kenn (michael.kenn(AT)philips.com), Jan 03 2006, who says: To achieve this result I used a shared network of 37 computers over the Christmas holidays. The total calculation time was equivalent to slightly more than 1 CPU year of a P4 - 2.4GHz.
