(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A242304 Decimal expansion of C(5), where C(x) = -Sum_{k>=1} (-1)^k/p_k^x and p_k is the k-th prime. 6
2, 7, 3, 9, 9, 2, 2, 2, 6, 1, 4, 5, 4, 2, 7, 4, 0, 5, 8, 6, 2, 7, 3, 6, 0, 9, 6, 8, 4, 6, 6, 9, 7, 4, 0, 2, 5, 5, 9, 2, 1, 2, 2, 7, 7 (list; constant; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

COMMENTS

The alternating series of reciprocal powers of prime numbers converge for any x > 0 (absolutely so if x > 1) but are hard to compute.

The next digits of C(5), after ...46697, seem to converge to a(32)=4, a(33)=0.
