The nth Prime Page will now find any of the first 2.623˙10^{15} primes or
π(x) for x up to 10^{17}. E. Rowland proved that if you set a(1) = 7, and for n > 2, a(n) = a(n1) + gcd(n,a(n1)); then a(n)  a(n1) (the "first differences") are all either 1 or prime. The list of prime generated by this formula begins 5, 3, 11, 3, 23, 3, 47, 3... (but it generates mostly 1s). [Caldwell]
