COMMENTS

This sequence is almost identical to A003420. However, there is an additional term 426 and after 30014 the number 81626 follows, while in A003420, 81149 is present between 30014 and 81626. With

C(m) = Product_{p=primes} 1 - Kronecker(-4*m,p)/(p - 1) (Hardy-Littlewood)

L1(m) = Sum_{j>0} Kronecker(-4*m,j)/j (L-function of the Dirichlet series)

the following table shows the differences:

              Criterion

          decrease increase

      k      C        L1

     341  0.28309  2.38177

     446  0.28272  2.38014 not in A003420 because L1(446) < L1(341)

     689  0.28193  2.39370

   ...

   30014  0.21541  3.08274

   81149  0.21560  3.08792 not in this sequence because C(81149) > C(30014)

   81626  0.20883  3.17785

  162686  0.20478  3.24017
