Let's take the sequence :

u(n) = nextprime >=n
(n >= 0 ) - Sloane A007918

2,2,2,3,5,5,7,7,11,11,11,11,13,13,17,17,17,17,19,19,23,23,
23,23,29,29,29,29,29,29,31,31,37,37,37,37,37,37,41,41,41,41

Now take a look at the serie : s(n) = 1/u(0) + 1/u(1) + .... + 1/u(n)

s(n) is divergent. (includes all primes as denominators)

I seems that s(n) = log(n) + K -- where K = 0.2934581.... when n goes to
infinity.

Ex : (tested from = n=10 to n = 10^10)
n = 10^10
s(n)= 23.3193090775 log(n) = 23.0258509299 s(n) - log(n) = 0.2934581....

** Question: does anybody have an idea about that ?

(trying to look into Samaranche papers, and found nothing).

thx.
