 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS From table in Kontorovich, version 2, 2005, page 7. Abstract: "The prime number theorem gives the following asymptotic for the n-th prime: p_n ~ iL(n), where we are calling iL the inverse to the logarithmic integral function, Li. Let pi(x) denote the number of primes p <= x with p=[iL(n)] for some n. We say that these primes hit the value suggested by the prime number theorem "on the nose". Using exponential sums, the method of stationary phase, and Vaughan-type identities, we show that pi(x) ~ x/log^2(x) and interpret this fact as the independence of the process of the primes to their average value, iL." For the benefit of anyone trying to track down the history of the sequence, we give references to all four versions of the Kontorovich paper (only one of which gives a list of the terms).
