COMMENTS

F_n-H_n approaches a constant, 'kappa', conjectured to be equivalent to the difference of B_3-gamma, where B_3 is Mertens' 3rd constant and gamma is Euler's constant.

FORMULA

a(n) = Numerator[(Sum_{k=1..n} mu^2(k)/phi(k)) - H_n] where mu(k) is the Mobius function, phi(k) is Euler's Totient function and H_n is the n-th Harmonic Number.

EXAMPLE

Numerators of F_n - H_n, e.g. - F_1 - H_1 = (1/1-1/1), F_2 = ((1/1-1/1) + (1/1-1/2)),...

F_11 = ((1/1-1/1) +(1/1-1/2) +(1/2-1/3) +(0-1/4) +(1/4-1/5) +(1/2-1/6) +(1/6-1/7) +(0-1/8) +(0-1/9) +(1/4-1/10) +(1/10-1/11)).
