COMMENTS

The number of strong primes < n ~ sum of strong primes < sqrt(n). The number of strong primes < 10^11 = 2014200162 and the sum of strong primes < 10^5.5 = 1972716560, for an error of 0.0206.

Cino Hilliard, Sum of Strong Primes

FORMULA

Given 3 consecutive primes p1,p2,p3, p2 is a strong prime if p2 > (p1+p2)/2.

Or, primes that are greater than the arithmetic mean of their immediate surrounding primes.

EXAMPLE

The strong primes < 10^2 are 11, 17, 29, 37, 41, 59, 67, 71, 79, 97. These add up to 10 which is the second term in the sequence.

PROG

(Other) See the link for Gcc programs that count and sum these primes.
