Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

The ratios Pi(2^n)/Pi(2^(n-1)) ~ 2. This follows directly from the Prime Number Theorem: Pi(x) ~ x/log(x). If we substitute b for 2, we have the general asymptotic Pi(b^n)/Pi(b^(n-1)) ~ b for any base b. For example, using Li(x) ~ Pi(x), Li(2^10000)/Li(2^9999) = 1.9997999711... Similarly, for b=13, Li(13^100000)/Li(13^99999) = 12.9998699994...Of course direct substitution of x=b^n in the PNT will, after some manipulation and taking limits, give us the exact limit b.

FORMULA

Pi(n) is the number of primes less than or equal to n.

EXAMPLE

Pi(2^12)/Pi(2^11) = 564/309 = 188/103. So 188 is in the sequence.

PROG

(PARI) /* Copy and paste the table in A007053 to a text file say, c:\work\test.txt.

Edit out the index leaving only a left wall of values. Start a new gp session. Read the file into gp: gp > \r c:/work/test.txt. This fills the %1 to %76 pari variables with successive primes <= 2^n
