COMMENTS

n/(Sum_{k=3..n} 1/k) is a better approximation to pi(n) than Gauss' Li(n) for 15 < n < 2803.

FORMULA

a(n) = floor((10^n)/(Sum_{k=3..10^n} 1/k)).

a(n) ~ 10^n/(log(10^n) + gamma - 3/2).

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 27 because (10^2)/(Sum_{k=3..100} 1/k) = 27.1195448585....

MATHEMATICA

lst = {}; Do[AppendTo[lst, Floor[10^n/(NIntegrate[(1 - x^10^n)/(1 - x), {x, 0, 1}, WorkingPrecision -> 20] - 1.5)]], {n, 13}]; lst
