COMMENTS

The first prime term in this sequence is a(82). - Artur Jasinski, Mar 30 2008

For n < 10^4, a(n)/A000217(n) is an integer for n = 1, 2, and 18. The integers are 1, 7 (prime), and 1062667552123515268933651, respectively. - Derek Orr, Sep 04 2014

FORMULA

a(n+1) = (n+1)*10^len(a(n)) + a(n), where len(k) = number of digits in k.

MAPLE

a[1]:= 1:

for n from 2 to 100 do

a[n]:= n*10^(1+ilog10(a[n-1])) + a[n-1]

od:

seq(a[n], n=1..100); # Robert Israel, Sep 05 2014

MATHEMATICA

b = {}; a = {}; Do[w = RealDigits[n]; w = First[w]; Do[PrependTo[a, w[[Length[w] - k + 1]]], {k, 1, Length[w]}]; p = FromDigits[a]; AppendTo[b, p], {n, 1, 30}]; b (* Artur Jasinski, Mar 30 2008 *)
