Sequence of the Day for February 21

A088751: Decimal expansion of
, the real root of the equation
1 +
k  = 1
pk xk
= 0
, where
is the
th prime.
− 0.68677783446063...

This is the inverse of Backhouse's constant (A072508), a number that is somewhat harder to compute than this one.

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).
