The function $\text{Li}(x)=\int_2^x~\frac{dx}{\log~x}$ is called the "logarithmic integral".
According to the Prime Number Theorem, it is approximately equal to the number of primes below x.
The function $\text{li}(x)=\int_0^x~\frac{dx}{\log~x}$ is also called the logarithmic integral;
the two functions differ by a constant.
(Since the definition of $\text{li}(x)$ involves integrating through a singularity,
some care is needed in interpreting the definition.)
