A225138


Difference between pi(10^n) and nearest integer to (4*((S(n))^(n1))) where pi(10^n) = number of primes <= 10^n (A006880) and S(n) = Sum_{i=0..2} (C(i)*(log(log(A*(B+n^(8/3)))))^(2i)) (A225137).

COMMENTS

A225137 provides exactly the values of pi(10^n) for n = 1, 2, 3, 5 and 9 and yields an average relative difference in absolute value, i.e., average(abs(A225138(n))/pi(10^n)) = 7.2165...*10^5 for 1 <= n <= 24.
A225137 provides a better approximation to the distribution of pi(10^n) than: (1) the Riemann function R(10^n), whether as the sequence of integers <= R(10^n) (A215663), which yields 1.453...*10^4, or as the sequence of integers nearest to R(10^n) (A057794), which yields 0.01219...; (2) the functions of the logarithmic integral Li(x) = Integral_{t=0..x} dt/log(t), whether as the sequence of integers nearest to (Li(10^n)  Li(3)) (A223166), which yields 7.4969...x10^3 (see A223167), or as Gauss's approximation to pi(10^n), i.e., the sequence of integers nearest to (Li(10^n)  Li(2)) (A190802) = 0.020116... (see A106313), or as the sequence of integers nearest to Li(10^n) (A057752), which yields 0.032486....
