 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS The Brun series is the sum over reciprocals of the (odd) twin primes (see the mathworld link). The denominators divided by 5 are given in A117508. A001359 gives the lesser of the twin primes (offset 1). A006512 gives the greater of the twin primes (offset 1). A029707=[2,3,5,7,10,..] gives the indices for the lesser of the (odd) twin primes (offset 0). The proof that the partial sums of the Brun series have numerators divisible by 4 and denominators divisible by 5 can be given by induction. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..11. W. Lang: Rationals and more. Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics, Brun's Constant FORMULA a(n)=numerator(r(n))/4, with r(n):=sum(1/ltp(k) + 1/(ltp(k)+2),k=1..n), n>=1, with ltp(k):=A001359(k) (lesser twin primes).
