 A242301 Decimal expansion of C(2), where C(x) = -Sum{k>=1} (-1)^k/prime(k)^x. 10

 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS The alternating series of reciprocal powers of prime numbers converges for any x > 0 (absolutely so if x > 1) but is hard to compute. The next digits of C(2), after ...6014, seem to converge to a(16)=1, a(17)=5. The next digit after ...15768335 seems most likely to be an 8. - Jon E. Schoenfield, Dec 27 2017 LINKS S.
