Table of n, a(n) for n=-3..41.

FORMULA

a(n) = min{p in A000040 and A002321(p) = n}.

EXAMPLE

a(-3) = 13 = the first prime for which the Mertens function M(n) = -3.

a(-2) = 5 = the first prime for which the Mertens function M(n) = -2.

a(-1) = 3 = the first prime for which the Mertens function M(n) = -1.

a(0) = 2 = min{A000040 INTERSECTION A028442} = the first prime for which the Mertens function M(n) = 0.

a(1) = 97 = min{A000040 INTERSECTION A118684} = the first prime for which the Mertens function M(n) = 1.

a(2) = 229 = the first prime for which the Mertens function M(n) = 2.

a(3) = 223 = the first prime for which the Mertens function M(n) = 3.

PROG

(PARI) a(n) = {p = 2; while (mertens(p) != n, p = nextprime(p+1)); p; } \\ Michel Marcus, Sep 24 2013
