Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

a(n) generates primes with probability >1/2 for a random integer [1,10^4] (see reference). For confirmation, I checked the distribution of primes using the link. Results up to a(24) are shown below. P and C stand for prime and composite, respectively. a(1):P a(2):C a(3):C a(4):P a(5):P a(6):P a(7):P a(8):P a(9):C a(10):C a(11):P a(12):P a(13):P a(14):P a(15):C a(16):C a(17):P a(18):P a(19):P a(20):C a(21):P a(22):P a(23):C a(24):P Probability was 16/24 > 1/2.
