Sequence of the Day for July 24

A115368: Decimal expansion of first zero of the Bessel function
The most famous zeros of a function are of course the nontrivial zeros of the Riemann zeta function. But other functions also have interesting zeros which mathematicians have studied, the Bessel function
being one of them. (Mathematicians have also studied the zeros of the Bessel functions

Sequences in the News

  • November 18, 2016 PrimeGrid proves that 10223 is not a Sierpinski number, since 10223 × 2 31172165 + 1 is prime. So no changes to A076336 for now.
  • September 14, 2016 Tom Greer discovers the twin primes 2996863034895 × 2 1290000 ± 1 using PrimeGrid, TwinGen and LLR.
  • January 19, 2016 Largest known term of A000043 announced: 274207281, also discovered by Curtis Cooper.
  • March 2, 2014 Fredrik Johansson announces a computation of the partition number \scriptstyle p(10^{20}) \approx 1.8381765\cdot10^{11140086259}, the largest known term of A000041.
  • December 6, 2013 Microsoft launches a challenge to find large non-Mersenne primes, A138837.
  • May 13, 2013 H. A. Helfgott submits a proof of the weak Goldbach conjecture, i.e. for odd numbers as sums of three primes: A007963 has no more zeroes.
  • January 25, 2013 Curtis Cooper discovers a new member of A000043, 57885161. Its index is not known but is at least 48.
  • January 13, 2013 The winners of the contest for new sequences in the OEIS at JMM 2013 were announced: A187824, A187771, and A187761.


I strive to live up to the highest ethical standards. If you feel that I have wrongly rejected one of your sequences (or otherwise failed to meet the expected standards), please leave a note at Complaints About Editing where it will be reviewed. I hope that in all cases you will first contact me (through the pink comment boxes, on my user page, or by email).
