This is something of a sacred cow, but I don't believe it to be true. I'm not claiming the following is an exact relationship by any means, but it is a start, and a step in the right direction; it holds pretty well for the first 100,000 primes with remarkable accuracy: 2*$n$*$P_{n}$ $\approx$ $P_{n^2}$ Examples: $n$----------$P_{n}$-------2*$n$*$P_{n}$-------$P_{n^2}$ 1-----------2------------4------------2 2-----------3------------12-----------7 3-----------5------------30-----------23 4-----------7------------56-----------53 5-----------11-----------110----------97 6-----------13-----------156----------151 7-----------17-----------238----------227 8-----------19-----------304----------311 9-----------23-----------414----------419 10----------29-----------580----------541 11----------31-----------682----------661 12----------37-----------888----------827 13----------41-----------1066---------1009 14----------43-----------1204---------1193 15----------47-----------1410---------1427 16----------53-----------1696---------1619 17----------59-----------2006---------1879 ... ... ... 77----------389----------59906--------58579 78----------397----------61932--------60289 79----------401----------63358--------62081 80----------409----------65440--------63809 ... ... ...
