A172168 Decimal expansion of Sum 1/q, where q is any prime of the form m^2 + 1. 2
8, 1, 4, 5, 9, 6, 5, 7, 1, 7, 0, 2, 9, 7, 2, 8, 4, 5, 2 (list; constant; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

COMMENTS

The sum is trivially convergent because each term is less than the corresponding term of Sum_{j>=1} 1/(j^2) = (Pi^2)/6.

Eight significant digits of this constant are mentioned in A083844, which gives the number of primes of the form m^2 + 1 < 10^n.

FORMULA
