In this note we give a simple formula for the nth prime number. Let pn denote the nth prime number (p 1=2, p 2 = 3, etc.). We shall show that p n is given by the following formula.
New explicit formulae for the prime counting function
In the paper new explicit formulae for the prime counting function π are proposed and proved. They depend on arbitrary positive arithmetic function which satisfies certain condition. As a particular
Finding Prime Numbers as Fixed Points of Sequences

In this note we describe a method for finding prime numbers as fixed points of particularly simple sequences. Some basic calculations show that success rates for identifying primes this way are over
A Natural Prime-Generating Recurrence
For the sequence defined by a(n) = a(n − 1) + gcd(n, a(n − 1)) with a(1) = 7 we prove that a(n) − a(n − 1) takes on only 1’s and primes, making this recurrence a rare “naturally occurring” generator

In my talk I will pose several questions about prime numbers. We will see that on the one hand some of them allow an answer with a proof of just a few lines, on the other hand, some of them lead to
Experimental methods applied to the computation of integer sequences
• Computer Science, Mathematics

The experimental method is applied to certain problems in number theory and combinatorics to understand certain integer sequences, and the recurrence an=an-1 +gcdn,an- 1 , which is shown to generate primes in a certain sense.
