Good day all,

            I want to make a summation like this:  Sum[f[i],{i, start,
finish}]. What I want is that the sum be over a specific set like
{1,3,5,7,11,13}. So the sum would be : f[1]+f[3]+f[5]+f[7]+f[11]+f[13]. The
set I want to use is the primes. So, how do I use, if possible, Sum over a
specific set ?
