Annual Appeal: Today, Nov 11 2014, is the 4th anniversary of the launch of the new OEIS web site. 70,000 sequences have been added in these four years, all edited by volunteers. Please make a donation (tax deductible in the US) to help keep the OEIS running.

COMMENTS

Two-sided primes: deleting any number of digits at left or at right, but not both, leaves a prime.

Primes in which every digit string containing the most significant digit or the least significant digit is prime. - Amarnath Murthy, Sep 24 2003
