COMMENTS

Mitchell's and Wilson's lists both lack two terms, 16387 = (16/8)^(7)+3 and 41665 = 641*65.  Giovanni Resta, Dec 14 2013
Primes in this sequence are listed in A112419. See also the subsequence A080035 of "orderly" terms, and its subset A156954.  M. F. Hasler, Jan 04 2015

FORMULA

a(n) ~ n, see Brand.  Charles R Greathouse IV, Jun 04 2013


EXAMPLE

E.g., 153=51*3, 736=3^6+7. Not 26 = 2 6 (concatenated), that's trivial.
