Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

Hints
(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A217884 Let c(m)=prime(m), m=1,2,3,4. For m>=5, suppose that c(m)/e is in the interval [c(k),c(k+1)). Then let c(m+1)=e*c(k+1) if e*c(k+1) < prime(m+1), and otherwise let c(m+1) = prime(m+1). Then a(n) is the n-th prime in {c(m)}. 2

COMMENTS

The preliminary sequence begins 2,3,5,7,3*e,13,5*e,19,7*e,3*e^2,31,...

with terms of the form p*e^k, where p is prime, k>=0.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..46.

FORMULA

If A(n)is the number of terms not exceeding n, then heuristically A(n)~pi(n). Practically, an approximation is given by formula A(n) ~ n/log(n*log(n)).
