COMMENTS

The PARI program can compute the first 9 terms in reasonable time. a(10) was computed by the program in the link. This took 145 sec on a p4 2.53 GHz processor while a(13) took 1.4 days and a(14) took 15 days with multitasking. The sum of twin primes < 10^n divided by 4 gives a very good approximation for the number of twin primes < 10^(2n). E.g., sum of twin primes <= 10^8 divided by 4 = 10301443659233. Pi_2(10^16) = 10304185697298. This is an error of 0.00002661. Pi_2(n): Number of twin prime pairs <= n.

EXAMPLE

(3,5),(5,7) are the two twin prime pairs less than 10. These add up to 20, the first term in the sequence.

PROG

(PARI) sumtwins(n) = { local(x, j, s, sr, p10x); for(x=1, n, s=0; p10x=10^x; forstep(j=3, 10^x, 2, if(j+2 < p10x & ispseudoprime(j) & ispseudoprime(j+2), s+=j+j+2); ); print1(s", "); ) }
