COMMENTS

Care should be taken to choose a sufficiently large n for a given m range for a in the script below. (50,1000) > 22,11,18,62,59,29,12,47,106,40,17,104,94,44,83,22,.. (50,2000) > 22,11,18,62,59,29,12,47,106,40,17,104,94,44,83,180,.. Notice the breakdown at the end. While the terms in the sequence tend to oscillate increasing, strange things are possible when more terms are listed. Conjecture: The number of terms in this sequence is infinite.

FORMULA

S(a, b) = Sequence of the unique count of primes between an and bn n=1, 2, ...


EXAMPLE

S(1,2) = 22,36,47,79,98,114,134,173.. > A084141 except for the first term
S(2,3) = 11,42,93,110,113,156,186..
S(3,4) = 18,100,102,147,200,203,238..
22,11,18 are the first 3 terms in the sequence.
