 OFFSET 1,6 COMMENTS The first n such that a(n) = 5 is a(102). Records in a(n) are a(n) = A002496(n)+1. Hardy and Littlewood conjectured that, asymptotically, a(n) ~ c*(sqrt(n))/log n, where c ~ 1.3727. REFERENCES Richard K. Guy, Unsolved Problems in Number Theory, 2nd Edn., Springer, 1994, A1, pp.4-5. LINKS EXAMPLE a(3) = 1 because the unique prime of the form k^2 + 1 less than 3 is 1^2 + 1 = 2. The smallest value of n to reach the next record is a(6) = 2 because a(18) = 2, the two primes of the form k^2 + 1 less than 6 are 2 and 2^2 + 1 = 5. The smallest value of n to reach the next record is a(18) = 3 because the three primes of the form k^2 + 1 less than 18 are 2, 5, and 4^2 + 1 = 17. CROSSREFS Cf. A000040, A002496.
