COMMENTS

From a posting by Hugh Montgomery to the Number Theory mailing list, Oct 05 2004: "Estermann, JLMS (1931), established an asymptotic formula for a(n). Page, PLMS (1935), gave a quantitative version of this, with an error term roughly (log n)^5 smaller than the main term. Walfisz, Zur additiven Zahlentheorie II, Math. Z. 40 (1936), 592607, established what we know today as the "SiegelWalfisz theorem" in a series of lemmas and used this new tool to give the formula for a(n) with an error term that is smaller by a factor (log n)^c for any c."

FORMULA

G.f.: (x^2+x^3+x^5+x^7+x^11+x^13+x^17+x^19+...)(x+x^2+x^3+x^5+x^6+x^7+x^10+x^11+x^13+x^14+x^15+x^17+x^19+...).
a(n+1) = Sum(A008966(k)*A010051(nk+1): 1<=k<=n) for n>0. [Reinhard Zumkeller, Nov 04 2009]


EXAMPLE

a(8) = 4: 8=2+6=3+5=5+3=7+1.


MATHEMATICA

m = 90; sf = Total[ x^Select[Range[m], SquareFreeQ] ]; pp = Sum[x^Prime[n], {n, 1, PrimePi @ Exponent[sf[[1]], x]}]; CoefficientList[Series[pp * sf, {x, 0, m1}], x] (* JeanFrançois Alcover, Jul 20 2011 *)
